A FIELD IN ENGLAND
2013, Drafthouse Films, 90 min, UK, Dir: Ben Wheatley

In 1648, a group of deserters from the English civil war take refuge from battle in an overgrown field, crossing paths with an alchemist’s assistant and treasure hunter. While there are plenty of mushrooms, treasure proves elusive in the field - but something much more ominous may be hiding there. This enigmatic film from on-the-rise director Ben Wheatley (KILL LIST) is both surreal and sinister, featuring moments of dark humor and stunning B&W cinematography. With Michael Smiley and Reece Shearsmith. “A FIELD IN ENGLAND is a mind-bending monochrome masterpiece... one of the best and bravest British films of the year.” - Twitch Film


THE BORDERLANDS
2013, Metrodome Distribution, 90 min, UK, Dir: Elliot Goldner

An English priest believes miracles are occurring at his rural church; in response, the Vatican sends Deacon (Gordon Kennedy) and Gray (Robin Hill) to investigate. Setting up cameras to record any unusual activity, the men approach their task with skepticism, only to discover the church hides some ancient mysteries. Writer-director Elliot Goldner’s feature debut is an auspicious one, giving an unusually strong emphasis to character development for a found-footage film without skimping on the screams. “THE BORDERLANDS is scary, unnerving and you're never quite sure where the movie is heading." - FlickeringMyth.com.
