Cartel Films is proud to announce its first production, “VAL,” an autobiographical documentary about the life and career of one of Hollywood’s most iconic actors, Val Kilmer. The film was produced, directed and edited by Ting Poo and Leo Scott.

“VAL” is the intimate portrait of the mercurial actor/artist, pieced together from over a thousand hours of unseen footage, spanning 50 years, that Kilmer either personally filmed or had filmed. The Film reveals Val’s extraordinary journey through success, fame, tragedy and reinvention, and is narrated by his son Jack Kilmer.

Ting and Leo started developing the concept in 2018 with Val, and eventually partnered with Boardwalk Pictures and A24 as producing partners and financiers. The film has been acquired by Amazon Studios and is now streaming on their platform as part of their Amazon original series.
