Premiering at Sundance in 2011 and spending the rest of the year traveling to film festivals around the world and picking up a couple of awards along the way, “Here,” starring Ben Foster and “Incendies” star Lubna Azabal is now settling in to hit theaters next month, and courtesy of Strand Releasing, we’re happy to unveil the lovely poster for the film.
Written and directed by filmmaker and music video helmer Braden King (he’s worked with Sonic Youth, Chan Marshall, Will Oldham, Tortoise, Low, Yo La Tengo and Sparklehorse among others), the film chronicles a brief but intense relationship between Will (Foster), an American satellite-mapping engineer and Gadarine, an expatriate photographer (Azabal) who impulsively decide to travel across the remote countryside together. However, as their trip comes to an end, the two must decide where their journey will take them next.
Not leaving his indie rock roots totally behind, King has reteamed with Michael Krassner, founder of the avant classical group Boxhead Ensemble, enlisting him to score the film (he also scored previous King short films as well as “Dutch Harbor: Where the Sea Breaks Its Back“).
“Here” will open in limited release starting on April 13th at the IFC Center in New York City. Full poster below.
