“I think Marfa Girl is my best film or at least as good as any film I’ve made,” said Clark in a statement. The film won the Marcus Aurelius Award for Best Film at the 2012 Rome Film Festival.
After it screened in Rome, Clark posted the film online and charged visitors to stream it, but now, two years later, the film will get a theatrical release.
“Marfa Girl” follows Clark’s tendency for youthful coming-of-age stories as it focuses on a group of young adults living in the West Texas town of Marfa near the Mexican border. The film stars Adam Mediano, Mercedes Maxwell, Indigo Rael, Lindsay Jones and Drake Burnette. On the acquisition, Breaking Glass CEO Rich Wolff said, “We are honored to be working with such a prominent director and are looking forward to a successful release.”
The film is set for theatrical release this winter. Check out some new stills for the film below:
