As you know, we’ve been working with a variety of incredibly progressive, innovative filmmakers for the past few months – all working to define the future of indie film distribution.
Independent filmmakers have always been on the cutting edge – taking risks on new film techniques, pushing the boundaries and trying new things long before the mainstream.
Today, we’re very excited to be a part of a very special film release with our friends at VODO. A Lonely Place for Dying is an action-packed Cold War spy thriller with an awesome cast (including Academy Award nominee James Cromwell). It’s the kind of film that takes the chances and nails it. And part one is now available for you to download, free. Check it out…
In addition to Cromwell, A Lonely Place for Dying stars Michael Wincott, Michael Scovotti and Ross Marquand. The film challenges conventional wisdom by placing character development and well-crafted dialogue side-by-side with gun battles, fist fights and aerial bombing raids. It’s an art house action film and an intelligent popcorn crowd-pleaser all rolled into one motion picture. It’s what every summer movie should be; smart, fun, gripping, nail-biting and emotional. The film has been honored at festivals across the globe and praised by both critics and audiences alike. The film has been an official selection of 38 festivals and received 45 award nominations while winning 19 including 14 awards as Best Picture. A complete list of awards is available here.
It is 1972. An abandoned Mexican prison sits alone in the dusty Chihuahua desert. KGB mole Nikolai Dzerzhinsky waits for his contact from the Washington Post. Dzerzhinsky holds explosive evidence against the CIA; information he will trade for asylum in the United States. Special Agent Robert Harper must obtain this evidence and kill Dzerzhinsky or risk the end of his CIA career. As the two men hunt each other they discover that the sins from their past destined them for this deadly confrontation.
