TLA Releasing announces that “FINDING ME: TRUTH” is NOW available to watch and download on multiple websites including iTunes and Amazon. The romantic drama, directed by Roger S. Omeus, Jr., centers around a group of love-and-sex-obsessed friends navigating the joys, and pratfalls, of relationships. The film is the exciting follow-up to the crowd pleaser, “FINDING ME” and both films are about the queer, African-American experience.
“This movie has been a dream of mine for a long time,” says Roger S. Omeus, Jr., writer-director-producer of “Finding Me: Truth” and “Finding Me.” “This story speaks to a lot of people and at every screening the audience responds very well to the film. It’s fun, touching, exciting and entertaining. We had a great time making it and I really hope after watching it you feel like you can relate to these characters too. I know I do.”

In the tradition of “Punks” and Logo TV’s “Noah Arc” “FINDING ME: TRUTH” turns its fresh, playful lens on the loves, losses, fights and jealousies of a group of close-knit friends in Jersey City. Faybien (RayMartell Moore), who is sweet, bright-eyed and emotionally vulnerable, is comfortable with his “gayness” but is wrestling with some self-esteem issues. His love life is put into an emotional spin when his ex-boyfriend, Lonnie (Derrick L. Briggs), returns wanting to reignite their relationship. Faybien’s friends, who regularly are supportive, are dealing with their own dramas including Reggie (Eric Joppy) who is in love with non-committal bisexual Greg (Eugene E. Turner)l, high-strung “queen bee” Amera (J’Nara Corbin) is certain that her boyfriend is cheating on her and muscular, sexy Jaylen (Maurice Murell) is too busy confronting his rough trade boyfriend’s girlfriend. The film is edited, written and directed by Roger S. Omeus, Jr., who also produced with Sontaia Briggs (“Finding Me”).
“FINDING ME: TRUTH” had its New York theatrical premiere at the Cinema Village, September 2011, has played to enthusiastic audiences in multiple cities (Houston, Atlanta and Boston) and was the Centerpiece selection at the 4th Annual Queer Black Cinema Film Festival in Brooklyn.
