Kiara Hunter to star in ‘The Plate’

Kiara Hunter has been cast as the lead actress in the short film entitled “The Plate” schedule to hit the festival circuit later this year. "The Plate" is a story about love, marriage and dirty dishes. A "War of the Roses" theme so to speak.

“The Plate” is a life story that dives into an unraveling marriage of insecure love and candy-coated realities. Whether it's over an issue of infidelity or simply putting your dirty plate in the dishwasher after a meal-there is level of tolerance that rises or plummets with each moment. Stand up and be heard or sweep it under your endless carpet covering up your pursuit of "perfection".

Kiara stars as ‘Alice Ray’, the wife of David Lewis’s ‘Maxwell Ray’. They are the only two actors in this film.

Kiara Hunter is a multi talented artist with formidable international presence as a film and television actress, a chart topping singer/songwriter and comic book series Creator. Her first lead role was in the action thriller “Dangerous Prey” followed by playing the wife of Lorenzo Lamas in the film “Mask of Death”. Her natural ease in front of the camera, combined with her ability to play physically demanding parts, led to a supporting role opposite Dennis Miller, as a deadly vampire in the “Tales from the Crypt: Bordello of Blood” and across from C. Thomas Howell in “Sleeping Dogs”.

Looking for more television roles, Kiara landed a 5 episode deal with Tribune’s popular “Nightman” playing a sassy body guard for successful Canadian actor Kim Coates. Building on this success, she earned another Lead in the Dennis Hopper and Michael Madsen film “LAPD – To Protect and Serve” followed by a substantial role in the 100th Anniversary episode of “Stargate” and Jim Wynorski’s film “Sub Zero” with Costas Madylor. Kiara is enjoying her status as a strong and committed actor taking on another lead in “The Thing Below” starring Billy Warlock and as the headliner for the sci fi thriller “Alien Incursion” that has just recently been picked up by the Sci-Fi Channel in the States.

David Lewis is an actor with a vast resume that includes roles in the “Butterfly Effect 11”, “Accidental Witness”, “Totally Awesome”, “The L Word”, “Paycheck” and “Stargate” to name a few.

‘The Plate’ examines the theory that having the white picket fences and strong ties to the community do not necessarily mean a joyful, loving marriage. Our character journey through the barriers of one another and themselves to communicate that of what they both continue to ignore-their ailing marriage. They are fighting resistance to accept the perceived "unaccepted" of today's society that heavily impedes on their already broken hearts.

It is a real life story that takes place all over the world each and every day. This story simply opens the front door as well as the back to provide you with a fascinating perception of life happening in unfortunate circumstances.

The Plate is written and directed By Dave Roncin and produced by Joshua Hinkson of Last Candle Pictures.
