American Wisper is the true story of the unsolved murders of an African American family.
In the summer of 2016, a mother and her three children were found shot to death in their suburban New Jersey home. They were discovered by a father and husband Josiah Wisper — a brash businessman who owned bars, restaurants, stores, and real estate properties in Harlem, New York. Wisper quickly became a pariah in the Harlem community — and was viewed with suspicion by friends, relatives, and people he had known for nearly half his life.
The film is based on true events and based on withheld police reports issued at the time of the murders. And, according to Writer/Producer Howard Nash, the ending will leave audience members speechless.
The producers want it known that they are seeking to have the original case reopened, and feel that a film in wide release is the only way to make that happen.
American Wisper is the movie that Hollywood hoped would never get made. American Wisper has now played at festivals all over the world, won nine International Film Festival awards, and is currently nominated for seven more. But more importantly, it continues to expand its audience, having garnered over 850,000 views on Amazon, DVDs, and other platforms since its release in March 2020.
American Wisper — a very tight thriller — thanks to a tight directorial effort, a tense script, and strong performances by all involved. it’s a genre movie that shouldn’t be missed.
