As far as getting your name out there with your first feature film, things couldn’t have gone better for director Gabriel Ripstein who snapped up the Best First Film trophy at the Berlin International Film Festival for “600 Miles.” And while the movie hasn’t yet landed a U.S. distributor, the international rollout is underway and the first trailer has arrived.
Tim Roth, Harrison Thomas, Monica Del Carmen, Kristyan Ferrer, Craig Hensley, and Julian Sedgwick star in the movie that follows an ATF agent who tracks a young gun trafficker, only to find the tables turned when he’s unexpectedly smuggled into Mexico by the very man he’s been keeping an eye on. The situation is grim and the agent will have to do everything he can to bargain for his life, while the young trafficker learns a lesson about the hard realities of the line of business he’s in.
Hopefully this one will hit stateside soon enough. Watch below and read our review.
