Celebrated indie helmer and fave on our site Robert Machoian has found a loving home for his latest oeuvre in the Tribeca Film Fest preemed The Integrity of Joseph Chambers. Deadline reports that Gravitas Ventures will release the film in chilly February. A limited release in theaters and on demand is in the cards. We had a lovely chat with the filmmaker — who its worth mentioning made the masterwork Sundance preemed The Killing of Two Lovers in 2020.
Clayne Crawford plays Joseph, who – wanting to acquire the skills to be able to take care of his family in case of an apocalypse – decides to go deer hunting by himself for the first time ever, despite his wife’s objections. Setting out into the mountains with a borrowed rifle, he roams the woods aimlessly in search of deer. His boredom is short-lived, however, when in the blink of an eye he goes through a traumatic experience. What starts as an experiment to prove himself as a capable father and husband turns into a nightmare as he finds himself faced with a terrible choice he must make.
