“The Devil On Wheels” garnered the most votes for the April Project of the Month. The prize is a creative consultation from our Project of the Month partner, Tribeca Film Institute. “The Devil on Wheels” will also be in the running for 2015 Project of the Year.
Take a look at the film’s pitch: “Duel” fans from all over the world regularly visit the film locations in the desert next to Los Angeles. They can quote every line of dialogue. Forty-odd years later, Steven Spielberg’s first known work has become an iconic piece of filmmaking and its influence is still fresh to this day. How come this tiny film, made cheaply and quickly for TV, has generated such a passionate, international and undying cult? “The Devil On Wheels” will look deep into the “Duel” phenomenon and in doing so, it will explore the power and fascination of films on people.
