(Los Angeles, CA – July 19, 2006)

AWARD-WINNING BUDDHIST MYSTERY “ZEN NOIR” OPENS SEPT. 15th

ZEN NOIR, an independent film by Marc Rosenbush, will open September 15th for an exclusive one-week engagement at Landmark’s Lumiere Theatre. Presented by Magic Lamp Releasing and produced by Marc Rosenbush, Frank Crim and Erika Gardner for Dreaming Dog Entertainment, ZEN NOIR has won several major festival awards, including the “Grand Jury Award for Best Feature” at the D.C. Independent Film Festival, “Best Feature” at the Moondance Film Festival and the coveted “Audience Award for Best Feature” at the Rhode Island International Film Festival, as well as awards for “Best Cinematography”, “Best Actress” and more.

ZEN NOIR is a unique, original mix of Buddhist thought, surreal imagery and vaudevillian comedy.

A nameless detective, still mourning the loss of his wife, investigates a mysterious death in a Buddhist temple, but his logical crime-solving techniques are useless in the intuitive, non-linear world of Zen. Increasingly confused and unnerved, he finds himself drawn into a deeper, darker, more personal mystery, where he must confront terrifying questions about love, loss, and the inevitability of change and death.

ZEN NOIR stars venerable character actor Kim Chan (Lethal Weapon 4, King of Comedy, Kundun, Shanghai Knights, The Fifth Element, “Kung Fu: The Legend Continues”) and Duane Sharp (Road to Perdition, Stir of Echoes, Dark) as the hapless detective, as well as Ezra Buzzington (Ghost World, Say It Isn’t So, The Hills Have Eyes), Jennifer Siebel, Howard Fong, and newcomer Debra Miller (named “Best Actress” at Indiefest Chicago for her performance as “Jane”).

ZEN NOIR was produced, written and directed by acclaimed theatre director Marc Rosenbush, a two-time winner of the Chicago Directors Festival whose work has twice been nominated for the Joseph Jefferson Award. ZEN NOIR is his first film.
