SXSW has some big, starry movies on the way, but it has long been the place where emerging filmmakers can make their voices heard, and writer/director Adam Pinney is one of them hoping to make his mark this year. He’ll be unveiling his debut feature film, “The Arbalest,” and today we have the exclusive trailer for what looks like a unique comedy.
Starring Mike Brune and Tallie Medel, the movie follows a ’70s toy inventor who recounts his life and the obsession with one woman he couldn’t let go. Here’s the synopsis:
Foster Kalt, a famous toy inventor in the 1970s, reflects on his lifelong obsession with Sylvia Frank. From his first meeting with Sylvia in a New York Hotel Room in 1968, to years later when he is stalking her from a cabin in the woods, the puzzle pieces of Kalt’s obsession come together to form his latest, shocking invention.
“The Arbalest” will have its first screening at SXSW on Monday, March 14th at 9 PM at the Vimeo Theater. Watch the trailer below along with a clip via Twitch.
