Cave Pictures, a film production company launched by More Partnerships president Mark Rodgers and Wedgwood member Dale Brown, released it’s first two films in April. Wildflower
, co-produced with Faith Street Films, will be released on DVD Tuesday, April 5 through Sony’s Provident division. Starring Nathalia Ramos, Cody Longo, and Shari Rigby, Wildflower
tells the story of a college student whose recurring nightmares may turn out to be a suppressed memory of a crime she witnessed as a little girl. She crosses paths with a young man dealing with his own personal grief, and together they work to unlock the mystery of a decade-old cold case.

And on Saturday, April 16, The Ticket
premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival
in New York. The film stars Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey)
in this fable about a man blind since childhood who miraculously recovers his sight, then sacrifices his relationships (marriage, best friend) on the altar of his growing ambition, bringing him to a point where it may be too late to recover what he has lost.
Cave Pictures produces aspirational mainstream media that are good for the soul’s consumption, true to the human condition, and beautiful in their craftsmanship. Taking its name from Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, Cave Pictures strives to catalyze conversation around issues concerning faith, hope, love, and family.
Other Cave films coming later this year are Waiting for the Miracle to Come, starring Willie Nelson and Oscar-nominated actress Charlotte Rampling, and Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of Shusaku Endo’s Silence, starring Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, and Liam Neeson.
