With his vivacious imagination and admiration for the cinematic arts COLIN ALWIN HARRIS (Writer/Director) presents HAIMA, an action-thriller inspired by and made in honor of all the classic action thrillers he watched passionately and religiously growing up and still watches today. Making his feature-film debut as a director, writer and producer, Colin was determined to make a movie filled with all the elements he found to be most compelling in films; richly layered storytelling, action, and suspense.
Haima is a story that had been gestating inside of him for quite some time. It is a dark and gritty tale about a young lady who embarks on a journey to discover the truth about her tragic childhood. While searching for answers about her mother’s murder, her life changes dramatically as she is beaten into an amnestic state. The young woman battles for survival at the hands of her attackers.
“My motivation as a filmmaker is not for notoriety as a director or to jockey for position in Hollywood. My motivation is simple. I want to make great movies. My inspiration for HAIMA is that I wanted my first feature film to be a movie that I would want to see. ”
