A Common Destiny & Visions of Hope

 

 

__STORYLINE__

The Pearl of Wisdom is an epic swashbuckler film, set during the Age of Reason (1600-1800). The film presents privateers and maroons who turn into outlaw pirates - in the conflict between British and French Empire over overseas territories in the New World... At the end of the day...ALL... tumblingly boils down to one nature... LIFE... as a reflection of the choices the characters have already made...

If you are a casting agent, perhaps it won't please you to read beyond this point.

 

We have limited finance to create this glamorous world of fascination and surprises - so we decide to spare the casting-agency money to further embellish the art direction and production design of the film.

 

However, all cast and crew roles are good paid!
