ABOUT THE FILM:
DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’: EVERYMAN’S JOURNEY

THEATRICAL RELEASE STARTS FRIDAY, MARCH 8 IN NY, LA & 15 other U.S. Cities

This is a film that transcends generations.  On one hand, this is a music-filled documentary for the post-YouTube, post-American Idol generation.  It is an aspirational, everyman’s rags-to-riches story set against the backdrop of some of the most anthemic songs of recent rock n’ roll history.  This generation may not necessarily know the provenance of the songs, but they know they’ve heard it somewhere before – at a ball game, as a soundtrack to a movie, TV show (i.e. Glee, The Sopranos) or a commercial, on their parents’ Ipod.  On the other hand, it is for their elders – their mothers and fathers and aunts and uncles – whose memories dance with the songs of Journey.

The film features band members, lead singer Arnel Pineda and original Journey members Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, Ross Valory & Deen Castronovo.   DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’: EVERYMAN’S JOURNEY was directed and written by Ramona S. Diaz, and produced by Josh Green, Capella Fahoome and Ramona Diaz. Running Time: 105 minutes & unrated by the MPAA.  Distributor Cinedigm / Docurama Films will release the film on Friday, March 8 in New York City, Los Angeles/Orange County, Honolulu, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, San Diego, Salt Lake City, Santa Fe NM, Richmond VA, Memphis TN, and March 15 in San Francisco, Guam &  Columbus OH, with other key cities to follow.  It will be available on VOD on Saturday, March 9.

WHAT THE MEDIA ARE SAYING:

“A cause for celebration! A kind of gentle applause that someone with talent has for once landed some kind of happy ending, that Filipinos are somehow inching forward in the vast American media landscape, conquering territory any way they can.” – Noel Vera, CriticAfterDark.com

NEW YORK MAGAZINE:  “One of the most remarkable rock stories of recent years!”

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS:  “Winning!  A film with a can’t-miss-Cinderella-hook, and a plot with cross-cultural resonance…made even sweeter by the charm of Arnel Pineda himself.”

VARIETY:   “Entertaining and impassioned!”

SCREEN COMMENT:  “Energetic, heartfelt and memorable.”

LOS ANGELES TIMES:  “Arnel Pineda’s tale stands out, even in the age of YouTube discoveries and ‘American-Idol’-fueled fame.”

HUFFINGTON POST:  “A wild ride.  You don’t have to be a Journey fan to enjoy this film. Arnel’s voice is pretty amazing, and he hits the stage like a jumping Jack, Mick Jagger times David Lee Roth. He’s a human pinball, caroming the stage.”
