"Disappearances" to Make Truly Indie US Apparition

By Indiewire | Indiewire April 23, 2007 at 3:49AM

The U.S. theatrical release of Jay Craven's mystical outlaw-adventure "Disappearances" will be handled by Truly Indie, the self-distribution arm of Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner's 2929 Entertainment. Written and directed by Jay Craven from a novel by Frank Mosher, the film is described as a "surreal journey into the northern wilderness frontier that features actor/musician Kris Kristofferson in his first lead role in 17 years. The film played at South by Southwest and AFI Fest among others. The deal was negotiated by Craven, who is also a producer on the project, with Truly Indie executive director Kelly Sanders and head of business and legal affairs Jason Janego. "'Disappearances' is a unique film that captures the spirit of Sam Peckinpah's revisionist Westerns while adding vivid, mystical undertones," said Kelly Sanders, executive director of Truly Indie, "With gorgeous 35 mm cinematography and a remarkable performance by Kristofferson, it marks a triumph in regional filmmaking."
