Equipped with a behind the scenes team of film composers Saunder Juriaans and Daniel Bensi (The One I Love) and film editor Marc Vives (Ping Pong Summer), it’s the approach and the biographical narrative treatment in Travis Gutiérrez Senger’s Desert Cathedral that has got me hyper curious. Employing a narrative hybrid model (found footage and archival materials) and what I’m guessing will be a fractured timeline, means creatively, we might be looking at a truly rich investigative experience.
Gist: Based on a true story and starring Lee Tergesen as the real life Peter Collins, this about a real estate developer who mysteriously disappears into the Southwestern desert in 1992, leaving behind a series of VHS tapes. Without the aid of the police, his distraught wife hires a private investigator to track him.
Release Date: With no mentions for Sundance and SXSW, Tribeca will want to put a choke-hold on this one.
