Shooting took place in November of 2017 on Alistair Banks Griffin‘s sophomore feature and a cast of Naomi Watts, Jennifer Ehle, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Emory Cohen, Brennan Brown and Jeremy Bobb to boot.

Gist: Naomi Watts plays a former 60’s activist, a celebrated counter-culture figure who now lives alone in her Bronx apartment and who has barely left her six-story walk up in years, becomes unraveled when an unseen tormentor begins harassing her as the events of the 1977 New York blackout riots unfold outside her window. A significantly larger budgeted in comparison to his lyrical, micro-budget debut, we look forward in seeing how his toolset matured over the stretch.

Production Co./Producers: Bailey Conway (Insidious: The Last Key), Automatik’s Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Teen Spirit), Bradley Pilz (Dreamland).

Prediction: U.S. Dramatic Comp.
