Long Description: Shot on location in Youngstown, Ohio, Round on Both Sides follows Niecy Bridges as she struggles to get her life together. Time is running out on both her dream of becoming a supermodel as well as her opportunity to be a good mother. After several years of being an absentee parent while pursuing her struggling modeling career in New York City, Niecy returns home to Ohio to check in her daughter. However, the comfort she seeks is not there; neither is Quinn, her 11-year-old child. When Niecy sets out to find her daughter she ends up finding herself instead. Marquette Jones is an award-winning filmmaker and graduate of New York University’s prestigious graduate film program. She runs Hotcomb Pictures, a film production company that specializes in creative, stylized film projects that explore the subtlety of human emotion through narrative, documentary and corporate films. Her short film credits include Round on Both Sides, Milk, Heroes Wanted, and Tunk. She won the Promotion Pictures/Heineken USA Screenwriting Competition for Streets 2 Suites, which awarded her a $40,000 grant to produce the film, which has gone on to do well on the festival circuit. As a producer, she has two award-winning short films under her belt; Adventures of Super-N******: First Episode, the Final Chapter, (a featured part of the Independent Film Channel’s docudrama, “Film School”), and the Showtime Network sponsored, A Spoonful of Sugar. Prior to film school, Ms. Jones was an active public interest attorney in Oakland, California protecting the rights of HIV-positive clients. Her inspiration as a filmmaker has drawn this and other social justice experiences. Ms. Jones currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and hails from Youngstown, Ohio.
