SXSW 2016 Exclusive: First Look At New AMERICAN FABLE Photos
We have the first look at four new photos from American Fable, which will soon have its world premiere at SXSW in Austin, Teas.
As the photos suggest, it's a dark thriller from writer/director Anne Hamilton, a protégé of Terrence Malick who spent a year as an intern on Malicks's The Tree of Life before making her first short film. This is her feature debut; she says that she was aiming for a mixture of Fargo and Pan's Labyrinth, so that's certainly ambitious.
Here's the official synopsis:
American Fable is a fairytale thriller set in the 1980s Midwest farm crisis about a courageous girl living in a dark and sometimes magical world. When 11-year-old Gitty discovers that her beloved father is hiding a wealthy man in her family's silo in order to save their struggling farm, she befriends the captive in secret and is forced to choose between saving the man's life and protecting her family from the consequences of their actions.
