ARC Entertainment has acquired U.S. rights to the civil war
drama “Echoes of War.”

Directed and co-written by Kane Senes, the
Texas-set film follows two neighboring families dealing with grief after the Civil War. The official synopsis reads, “The cattle-ranching McCluskeys have lost both a son and their entire herd to the war. The Rileys, mourning the loss of wife and mother Mary to illness, eke out a living trapping animals and selling their pelts. When Seamus Riley’s brother-in-law Wade (James Badge Dale) returns from fighting for the Confederacy, he soon discovers that Randolph McCluskey (William Forsythe) and family have been stealing animals from his family’s traps. He decides it is intolerable and takes matters into his own hands, sparking yet another tragic and senseless war.”

“We are proud to release this powerful film and distribute ‘Echoes of War’ across all platforms,” ARC Entertainment’s Head of Acquisitions, Scott Moesta. “The cast delivers a powerful performance shedding the truths and hardships of war.”

Following a premiere at the Dallas International Film Festival, ARC Entertainment will release the western thriller in
theaters and on demand May 15.
