Below is the press release for MAKE OUT WITH VIOLENCE, making its Boston premiere this weekend at the IFFB.
BP is doing our best to give coverage of films appearing at the IFFB this week despite having been denied press credentials – stay tuned for more updates…
MAKE-OUT with VIOLENCE, produced and directed by Nashville filmmakers the Deagol Brothers, is screening as a "Narrative Feature" selection for IFFBoston 2009.
MAKE-OUT with VIOLENCE will be screening at-
The Somerville Theatre on Friday April 24th @ 10pm
Our debut feature is part eerie love story, part coming-of-age drama and part zombie flick. With its stylized vision and custom-made soundtrack, Make-Out with Violence recalls the early work of Wes Anderson and Sofia Coppola.
On a micro-budget, we took a small group of friends and family members and shot in Hendersonville, TN for over 2 years. We have an original pop-score of 50+ songs that took over 3 years to complete and the 2 disc 44 song soundtrack is now available on our website! Inspired by Brian Eno, this all original soundtrack was created so that each character in the film would have a discrete musical direction.
M-OwV was very well received at SXSW this year and will be screening in Boston just a week after our hometown festival in Nashville. The Nashville FF celebrates our return with 2 screenings during the festival and a live performance of the soundtrack by the Non-Commissioned Officers!
We have won Jury prizes at the Atlanta Film Festival, Indie Memphis, the Oxford Film Festival, and the Magnolia Film Festival.
