My compliments to whoever is responsible for the poster art to Michael Tully's Septien
. Because this thing is truly a work of art and we're proud to premiere it here on ScreenAnarchy. Just take a little while to mull that thing over and then come back down here for details about the film.
All done? Good.
As one of the five films in the Sundance Selects program - the others are Kaboom
, Uncle Kent
, Mad Bastards
and These Amazing Shadows
- the film will premiere simultaneously on the big screen and on the Sundance Selects VOD platform, with major US cable operators making the films available for a thirty day window. Here's how the festival describes this one:
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
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!
