Adam Yauch, head of O-scope, added, "Everyone at The Scope is ecstatic to be working with such a talented filmmaker and release his amazing and unique directorial debut. Evan even promised to rig my Prius with a flame thrower that runs on bio-fuel."

PUT SOME ASBESTOS ON THAT HAIR PIECE. OSCILLOSCOPE PREPARES TO TORCH THE COMPETITION WITH EVAN GLODELL'S BELLFLOWER LOVE, DEATH, FIRE BREATHING CARS, AND WHISKEY WATERFOUNTAINS

COMING SUMMER 2011

(Park City, January 27, 2011) – Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired all English-language territory rights to emerging talent Evan Glodell’s directorial debut BELLFLOWER, which was a stand-out at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Oscilloscope plans a U.S. theatrical release this summer. The deal was brokered by David Fenkel of Oscilloscope and CAA on behalf of Glodell. Glodell is also represented by Lichter, Grossman, Nichols, Adler, and Feldman.

BELLFLOWER was a critic and audience favorite for its visceral energy, gorgeous imagery, and DIY filmmaking, all of which come together in a story of extreme love and explicit mayhem on the outskirts of L.A. Woodrow and Aiden spend all of their free time building Mad Max inspired flame-throwers and weapons of mass destruction in preparation for a global apocalypse in which their imaginary gang "Mother Medusa" can emerge on top. But when Woodrow meets a charismatic young woman and falls hard in love, he and Aiden quickly integrate into a new group of friends, setting off on a journey of betrayal, love, hate, infidelity, and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their apocalyptic fantasies.

The film was written and directed by Glodell and stars Glodell, Jessie Wiseman, Tyler Dawson, Rebekah Brandes, and Vincent Grashaw, who also produced the film through Coatwolf Productions, his company with Glodell.

Evan Glodell enthused “We’re insanely excited that Bellflower will be released by Oscilloscope, and are extremely grateful that we’re being introduced to the world with a company that is so supportive of the artists they work with.”

Adam Yauch, head of O-scope, said, "Everyone at The Scope is ecstatic to be working with such a talented filmmaker and release his amazing and unique directorial debut. Evan even promised to rig my Prius with a flame thrower that runs on bio-fuel."
