About The Event

TRAILER--> THE MAN WITH THE SILVER CASE

Already killing himself with drugs & alcohol, an anonymous American agent, the Man in Gray, accepts a deadly job: deliver a suitcase to a shadowy organization. Though handcuffed to his wrist, he remains incurious to its contents even he is running from those who will murder for it. When the company he works for starts tearing itself up, he escapes to a safe house which puts him in contact with a family unprepared for the havoc he brings. While hiding and waiting, he finds himself struggling with a nihilism that demands he destroy everything he encounters because it’s the only way to get a job done. Like Melville and Haneke The Man With the Silver Case binds style, politics and genre for a new generation. Shot in native b/w the snowy and rugged Lauterbrunne Valley contrasts against an anonymous man fighting against the wasteful self-destruction he encourages in his life.

Note from Producer Chris Martin

The Man With the Silver Case. We were eager to shoot a film that could summon the spirit and style of French New Wave director Jean-Pierre Melville, and hopefully revive his austere and subtle social conscience for today’s audiences.

Wanting to blend vintage sensibilities with new technologies, we chose the RED Mono system to find shades of gray in late winter Alpine landscapes in Switzerland’s Bernese Oberland and the Lauterbrunne Valley. Additionally, our sound design – led by Academy Award winner Steve Maslow (Speed, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Empire Strikes Back) and a robust musical soundtrack – is enhanced by the pioneering theatrical sound system SoundFi. We are the first independent project to receive their 3D audio treatment.

About The Event

Ted Geoghegan 2017, USA, 91 mins

The War of 1812 has revived violent hostilities between the British and their erstwhile American colonial subjects. The powerful Mohawk nation of the New York region is divided as to whom they should stand by, and so they maintain a position of neutrality. They want no part in the killing – but the killing is coming to them. An impulsive attack on an American encampment has drawn the vengeful attentions of a ragged band of American military renegades, led by the vicious, racist Hezekiah Holt. Oak, Calvin, and their British lover Joshua flee into the woods so familiar to them, but the murderous musketeers on their trail will not be deterred. Not without the spilling of blood.
