A filmmaker synonymous with American indie film but hasn’t been picked by Sundance in his first four features in Ape (2012), Buzzard (2014), The Alchemist Cookbook (2016) and Relaxer (2018), perhaps the narrative will change with his fifth feature which moved into production this past summer in Michigan. Joel PotrykusVulcanizadora sees his muse Joshua Burge for what is naturally a dark comedy.

Gist: This is described as a mind bending ride of comedy, suspense and utter devastation.

Production Co./Producers: Ashley Potrykus, Dan Berger, Dweck Productions’ Hannah Dweck, Factory 25’s Matt Grady.

Prediction: Next.

Sales: Factory 25.
