Monterey Media Acquires AFF Thriller 'The Living'

Monterey Media has acquired the distribution rights to psychological thriller “The Living.”

A winner at the Manhattan Film Festival and official selection from Austin and Las Vegas Film Festivals, “The Living” tells two separate but interrelated stories, centering on a man who severely beats his wife while blackout drunk.

Scott Mansfield, Managing Partner at Monterey Media was excited to announce the acquisition. Said Mansfield: “I was fortunate to serve on the Jury at Tallgrass where I encountered this wonderfully created thriller full of surprises and compelling performances.”

Directed by Jack Bryan, the film stars Fran Kranz (“Donnie Darko”), Jocelin Donahue (“Insidious: Chapter 2”), Chris Mulkey (“Twin Peaks”), Joelle Carter (“Justified”) and Kenny Wormald (“Clerks II”).

An early 2015 theatrical release is planned
