Carlo’s American Dream a film by Maria Johnsen

“I have written several scripts based on the true events. There were several good Biography drama movies which are based on real people’s life story in the history of cinema, and they have dominated the Academy Awards in Hollywood. Why did I write about Charles Ponzi? Well, we all have observed online con artists who sell pyramid scheme and certain multilevel marketing products. I found writing about Charles Ponzi could be intriguing, a depiction of real characters and events back in 1929 in the U.S and Canada. This is why I wrote a novel “ Carlo’s Big Dream” and turned it into a feature film screenplay. In my story I dig deeper in Charles (Carlo) Ponzi’s life and how MLM and Pyramid started. Biography film is great. It has inspired a lot of its audiences and has garnered more attention.” Maria Johnsen says.

This feature film project is currently in pre-production process.
