The Arbalest

Adam Pinney’s “The Arbalest” won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature at this year’s South by Southwest. Now, the drama will be released later this month for all to enjoy.

From the minds behind “Too Many Cooks,” comes the story of a famed and enigmatic toymaker named Foster Kalt (Mike Brune), the inventor of the “Kalt Cube.” The film follows him in a series of flashbacks over the course of an interview with a TV reporter while he reflects on his lifelong obsession with Sylvia Frank (Tallie Medel).

FilmBuff Movies released a new trailer for the upcoming movie, which features Kalt discussing his first meeting with the apple of his eye, to years later stalking her from a cabin in the woods.
