Sundance 2011: First Images From Michael Tully's SEPTIEN
Soon to premiere in the Park City at Midnight program at Sundance, the first images have appeared online for Michael Tully's cult comedy Septien. Here's the official word from the festival:
Check the images below!Eighteen years after disappearing without a trace, Cornelius Rawlings returns to his family's farm. While his parents are long deceased, Cornelius's brothers continue to live in isolation on this forgotten piece of land. Ezra is a freak for two things: cleanliness and Jesus. Amos is a self-taught artist who fetishizes sports and Satan. Although back home, Cornelius is still distant. In between challenging strangers to one-on-one games, he huffs and drinks the days away. The family's high-school sports demons show up one day in the guise of a plumber and a pretty girl. Only a mysterious drifter can redeem their souls on 4th and goal.
Triple-threat actor/writer/director (and disturbingly gifted athlete) Michael Tully creates a backwoods world that's only a few trees away from our own, complete with characters on the edge of sanity that we can actually relate to. A hero tale gone wrong, Septien is funny when it's inappropriate to laugh, and realistic when it should be psychotic. Goooaaaaaaaaal!
