Corman’s World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel

Chronicles the six-decade (so far) career of the U.S. film industry’s most diverse, dogged and resourceful low-budget producer-director-entrepeneur, painting the soft-spoken Roger Corman as an indie cinema trailbrazer as well as an extraordinary conduit for new talent.


Based on a true story, Backcountry follows an urban couple camping in the wilderness who get hopelessly lost. Without food or water, they struggle to find their way back. When they enter a predatory bear’s territory, their trip turns into a horrific tale of tragedy, will, and survival. [Synopsis courtesy of Toronto International Film Festival]
