Continuing its relationship with Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix, Kino International has announced the acquisition of Graham Reznick’s debut feature “I Can See You” – along with his unreleased 3D short film “The Viewer” – for release on DVD and VOD. Following the 2008 release of Ilya Chaiken’s “Liberty Kid” and Ti West’s “Trigger Man,” also produced by Glass Eye Pix, Kino International will distribute the fifth in Larry Fessenden’s low-budget horror ScareFlix anthology.
Focusing on three young and ambitious ad-men who go on a weekend-wilderness trip to brainstorm for their first major assignment, “I Can See You,” says Kino, “progressively descends into a nightmare of madness and sensory overload.” The film’s ad-men are played by real-life members of Waverly Films (Ben Dickinson, Duncan Skiles and Chris Ford), a Brooklyn based production company specializing in commercials and music videos. Long-lost Claractix pitchman Mickey Hauser is played by producer Larry Fessenden.
The film had theatrical premiere in New York City this past month, handled by Cinema Purgatorio. Cinema Purgatorio will continue to handle the film’s theatrical release. “I Can See You” should play in five to ten additional theatrical markets before Kino releases its DVD in the Fall of 2009.
The deal was negotiated by Kino prexy Donald Krim, producer/filmmaker Larry Fessenden (from Glass Eye Pix) and Ray Privett (from Cinema Purgatorio).
