Olivia Wilde: Executive Producing Tribeca Documentary Short!

Olivia Wilde has stepped behind the camera for a cause close to her heart!

The 27-year-old actress and fellow actress Maria Bello executive produced Sun City Picture House, a documentary short that will premiere at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival.

Here’s the synopsis: Sun City Picture House tells the story of Rapheal Louigene, a young Haitian man who loves movies. After watching the last of the old colonial movie theaters destroyed in the earthquake he enlists the help of a priest and two young aid workers to build Haiti’s only movie theater on a hill above a tent city. The community rallies behind and all pitch in to work, sometimes through the night for four days and through a tropical storm to open on time.

FYI: Olivia and Maria are both huge supporters of Artists for Peace and Justice, an organization that helps provide education, meals, clean drinking water, and medical treatment to children living in the slums of Haiti.
