Violent Nights

Christian Ghosn

Log line: Set against the backdrop of the FBI’s takedown of the Italian Mafia in Queens, NY, in the mid 90s - Jackie Green, a black hitman working for the son of a feared boss, makes a move against the Mafia to establish himself as the ruler of Queens. With the FBI circling and bullets flying, protecting his loved ones may be sacrificed in the name of power.

Bio: Christian Ghosn is a Lebanese-Canadian Writer/Director who doubled majored in Dramatic Writing and Film/TV Production at Tisch. Upon arriving at NYU Christian quickly found his niche in what he refers to as the Crime-Romance genre. Though sometimes romance must take a back seat to crime. In addition to penning multiple feature length screenplays, he has also written and directed multiple short films. His latest is a short version based on the characters and story of Violent Nights (see above) - it just finished post production and the Producers have their sights set on big name festivals. His pervious short film “When Don Met Vicky” had it’s NY premiere in June 2018 at the New York Shorts International Film Festival and was an award winner of the Redline International Film festival. If you insist on asking him why he continuously writes in a crime driven cinematic universe, and he knows that you will, a smile will come across his face and he will go on to quote Quentin Tarantino by exclaiming “Because it’s so much fun Jan!”
