A directorial debut that has been kicking around numerous indie financial support groups (Cinereach, IFP, Annenberg Feature Film Grant by the Sundance Institute) for some time, the Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film of 2013 named Lou Howe’s Gabriel is indie drama the way we like it: dark and disturbing.
Gist: A young man searches obsessively for a girl from his past, convinced that she is the solution to his problems. Over the course of his journey, his perception of the world begins to slip away from reality. His family tries to prevent him from endangering himself, but he struggles to continue, growing desperate and erratic as he closes in.
Release Date: This could land at Tribeca, TIFF or any European film fest looking to fill their American indie quota.
