READ MORE: Project of the Day: ‘If There’s A Hell Below’
First-time filmmaker Nathan Williams is bringing a new slow-burning thriller to Slamdance. The writer-director was able to source “If There’s a Hell Below” through Seed&Spark crowdfunding, as donators connected with his description of a movie “about authority and freedom of information, idealism and cynicism, right and wrong.”
The film follows an ambitious young journalist (Conner Marx) seeking to gain serious information through a woman (Carol Roscoe) who claims to work in national security. In order to leak the details secretly, she insists on meeting in a desolate place in the American West. An hour after their meeting, one of them will be dead.
“If There’s a Hell Below” will screen at Slamdance on January 24 and 27. Check out the trailer above and the poster below for an exclusive preview.
