Outrider Set to Unveil "American Adobo" 

(indieWIRE/11.12.01) -- "American Adobo," a new film 
directed by Laurice Guillen and written & produced by 
distribution exec Vincent Nebrida, has been acquired by 
Outrider Pictures and will be released theatrically early next 

Described in a prepared statement as "a comedy about five 
Filipino-American friends, their life choices and their 
destinies," the movie will open in the Philippines on January 
16, 2002 and one-week later in New York, San Francisco 
and Los Angeles. The film had its US Premiere in 
September at the San Diego Asian Film Festival. Among the 
movie's executive producers is Kevin Foxe, an executive 
producer of "The Blair Witch Project." 

Nebrida's career as an executive took him to Fine Line, 
Cinecom and Stratosphere. "After working behind the 
scenes for so many years distributing other people's films, 
it's a tremendous feeling of achievement to complete and 
see my own work up on the screen. There are so many fine 
films produced in the Philippines that never get an 
opportunity to be viewed by American audiences. I'm thrilled 
'American Adobo' will have that chance," commented 
Nebrida, a Philippine cinema historian, in a prepared 

Outtrider, launched at Sundance this year as SearchParty 
Films, was formed by Larry Estes and Scott Rosenfelt. 
Richard Abramowitz is on board overseeing the company's 
marketing and distribution. [Eugene Hernandez]
