It’s hard to reduce Atlanta-based filmmaker Vandon Gibbs dramatic thriller Solace to a
simple description. Suffice to say that it is, without question, quite original, with a
plot that goes off in totally unexpected directions.
Written and directed by Gibbs, using three seemingly undated
plotlines involving a black hustler, an adulterous politician and his suspicious
wife, a nervous wreck of a lawyer, a hired hit man and his intended victim tied
to a chair pleading for her life while trying to figure out why she’s there in
the first place, Gibbs weaves a complex and corrupt world of treachery,
lies and unsettling dread.
The film won the Jury Award for Best Drama at Cinequest
in San Jose California, and was also screened at the Atlanta Film Festival, the New Orleans Film Festival, the Black
Harvest Film Festival in Chicago, the
Peachtree International Film Festival and the Bronze Lens Film Festival in Atlanta.
Now, starting on Tuesday
