Chad Hartigan’s ‘This is Martin Bonner’ Goes to Monterey Media for Summer Release

Chad Hartigan's 'This is Martin Bonner' Goes to Monterey Media for Summer Release

Chad Hartigan’s “This Is Martin Bonner” has gone to Monterey Media for US distribution. The film, starring Paul Eenhoorn and Richmond Arquette, won Sundance’s Best of NEXT audience award. Monterey is eyeing a Summer release and will push for awards consideration in the fall.

Hartigan says, “Monterey is committed to bringing unique films to audiences all over the country and I’m honored to join the likes of Guy Maddin and Monte Hellman on the list of their recent collaborators.”

Fifty-something Martin Bonner (Eenhoorn) leaves his old life behind and
relocates to Reno, where he finds work helping released prisoners
transition to life on the outside, while trying his hand at speed dating
and passing time as a soccer referee on weekends. Meanwhile, Travis
Holloway (Arquette) has just been released from prison after serving 12
years. Surprising both of them, they find unspoken support and
understanding as both Martin and Travis struggle in an unfamiliar
place—looking for a second chance at life.
