EXCL Photos: Christopher Denham’s Tribeca Midnight Premiere, “PRESERVATION”Movies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
One of the best, and sadly lesser known, films of the current found footage boom is Christopher Denham’s HOME MOVIE. With that film, the talented actor seen in SOUND OF MY VOICE certainly earned eager anticipation for his follow-up feature, whatever it may be. It is now arriving in the form of PRESERVATION, a film world premiering in the Midnight Section of the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival and one that seeks to subvert a certain kind of age-old horror story. Prior to its premiere, see an exclusive peek at PRESERVATION in new images, below.
In PRESERVATION, “brothers Sean and Mike Neary, along with Mike’s wife Wit, head out on a hunting trip that doubles as a distraction from their troubles at home. But ignoring the “closed” sign and heading deep into an overgrown nature preserve, they soon find their troubles are only beginning. When all of their gear is stolen, they immediately turn on each other. But the hunted can only survive so long standing alone. Just when you think you have heard the story before, Preservation twists into a sharp and startling take on why we fight and, in our tech-obsessed age, what we have been missing out on in the great outdoors.”
PRESERVATION premieres Thursday, April 17 at 8:30 p.m. with screenings on Friday, April 18 and Saturday, April 19 to follow. FANGORIA will certainly be on hand for the film, as well as all other genre playing Tribeca. For more on PRESERVATION, including ticket info, head to its spot in the Tribeca Film Guide here.
