"We are excited to be working with Gravitas Ventures on the release of Days of Power; the company's reputation and indie spirit felt like the perfect partner to help us reach a mass audience," stated Days of Power Co-Producer Alysia Reid. Days of Power tells the story of a Swiss pop star who disappears while on tour, along with her assistant, backup singer, and drummer; they find themselves kidnapped, hidden within a concealed puppy mill industry. The film, written and produced by Michel Grey ("Trinity Rising," "Foreclosure Dogs," and "Beyond The Bombs"), and the directorial debut from Jason Pagnoni, was inspired by actual events. "The general public, for the most part, is completely uninformed about the shocking reality of puppy mills and do not even realize that these facilities or this industry exist. The film is designed to inspire people to start adopting and to give insight into this little-known industry. I believe if people understood what was happening behind closed doors the demand would cease to exist, ultimately ending the supply," states Days of Power writer/producer Michel Grey. The film has received incredible support from multiple rescue groups and animal rights organizations around the country including: Rescue Ohio English Bulldogs, Pacc911, Paws New England, Barcs, Faithful Friends Animal Society, and SPCA of Tennessee.
Days of Power Director Jason Pagnoni says, "The challenge was to ensure that as we pulled back the layers to this facade delving deeper with our main characters into the realities of these vile acts that we created a provocative and hard-hitting film that melds both fact and fiction in a way that these atrocities can be exposed to a more commercial and viably, larger audience to make the most impact and difference." The deal was negotiated by Josh Spector on behalf of Gravitas Ventures and Jeff Goldman of Cardinal XD on behalf of the filmmakers.
