The exclusive SXSW poster for “Kilimanjaro’ is here and it highlights the notable names featured in this film debuting in the Narrative Spotlight category at the upcoming festival which launches March 8. The film features a range of stars like Brian Geraghty of “The Hurt Locker,” Alexia Rasmussen of “Listen to Your Heart,” Chris Marquette of” The Girl Next Door,” Abigal Spencer of “Cowboys and Aliens” and comedian Jim Gaffigan.
Written and directed by Walter Strafford, “Kiliminjaro” is a story that will probably resonate with quite a few members of the SXSW audience. The drama follows Doug Collins (Geraghty) who, as he approaches thirty, begins to believe that the best years of his life are flying by and he needs to make a few changes. Some of those changes include leaving his long-term girlfriend who he no longer loves as well as the job he hates. Sensing a new freedom with no attachments, Doug decides to set on a journey to climb Kilimanjaro with his friend Mitch (Marquette). As he fully commits to the trip, he meets a new girl while training, bills pile up and difficult decisions have to be made.
