Writer/director Martin Simpson’s low budget indie thriller Indigo Lake is making the terrifying debut onto Australian cinema screens later in the month as it world premieres in Canberra on 23 April, 2017. As tough as the cinema exhibition landscape is for films to get screens, it’s even harder for local independent content to break through.
Check out the trailer and presser below:
Synopsis: Celebrated artist Jack Zeffa is hired by nightclub owner Bill Kazak to paint a portrait of his beautiful but troubled wife Ruby. As Jack paints her, he and Ruby fall in love. In the intimacy of his studio, as Jack paints Ruby, she inspires him to break from the tortured past that has been smothering his artistic capabilities. Ruby, taken seriously by a man for the first time in her life, sees a future beyond the darkness she has endured while trapped in her marriage to Kazak. But her husband’s suspicions soon explode into violence. The lovers, fearful for their lives, fight back, hijacking Kazak’s attempt to kill them, drugging the nightclub owner and driving him into the lake in his car.
INDIGO LAKE, a neo-noir story of an artist, his muse, and her brutal husband, is set to thrill Australian audiences on its release in late April. In a gripping story of murderous adultery, the film explores the deeper theme of what an artist must sacrifice to make ‘real’ art. Aimed squarely at an adult audience, INDIGO LAKE is an elegant and reflective exploration of passion and loss.
Indigo Lake is a feature film produced by Brian Cobb, written & directed by Martin Simpson, starring Andrew Cutcliffe, Miranda O’Hare, Marin Mimica and Pamela Shaw.
Brian Cobb, Cobbstar Productions “The film showcases new Australian talent in both acting and production. We are really excited to be able to show this work on the big screen where the audience can experience the visuals and sound at their best”.
“We are proud to bring another feature film to Australian cinema audiences and hope to see more theatrical screenings around Australia”, Australian distributor Ross Howden, ScreenLaunch.
