Triggering Coming of Age Short “Me 3.769” to premiere on HBO on Aug 1st

A child victim of sexual abuse is at the center of award-winning filmmaker Elaine Del Valle’s Poignant Storyline 

NEW YORK, NEW YORK (August 1, 2019)- Me 3.769, a short by award-winning filmmaker Elaine Del Valle exclusively premieres on HBO NOW on August 1. The critically acclaimed film comes about in a time when child sexual abuse is at the forefront of the news, and the #MeToo movement is in full throws.

Inspired, in part, by true events, the numerically titled film, Me 3.769, tells the story of a pubescent girl from Miami that endured sexual abuse by a trusted male figure. The searing script was adapted from Del Valle’s celebrated one-woman play Brownsville Bred, an off-Broadway show that debuted in New York City in 2011.

“In the end, this movie is about how we women uniquely empower each other, and our ability to pave the way for future generations.”, said Elaine Del Valle on making Me 3.769

Elaine Del Valle has worked as a casting director for nearly a decade. In recent years, she’s manifested her passion for storytelling through directing and producing. In 2017 the short film Victor & Isolina, which she produced, screened at Sundance.

In 2015, Del Valle became the first person ever to license an interstitial series to HBO when the network acquired thirty episodes of the web series she produced, “Gran’pa Knows Best.” Since then, Elaine has licensed several films to the network, but Me 3.769 marks her first as writer and director on the channel.
