Currently in post-production and eying a release date in 2010 is Hollywood Independents’ upcoming D’Agostino, which promises that “Something volcanic is erupting at the caldera!“
Written, directed, and edited by Jorge Ameer, D’Agostino is the story of a human clone left for dead at the shores of Santorini, Greece. This lost cargo, commissioned by wealthy individuals for organ tranplants, is abandoned as the freight cannot be recovered. Allan Dawson has recently inherited his grandmother’s island estate. He’s in a loveless relationship with his fiancee, Sylvia Krystel. As he finds this interesting freight, what follows is a macabre tale of self realization as Allan proceeds to set himself out of his sedentary existence to mold his latest discovery into a new best friend.
The discovery of D’Agostino encourages a well-meaning ineptitude that rises to empyreal absurdity for Allan, but as his interactions progress, we are exposed to a monstrousness; a penetrating ferociousness within his state of mind that leads to a quality of being ruthless, cruel, harsh, and unrelenting. We soon see Allan fall into the depths of moral perversion which will ignite an explosive and unforeseeable backlash, hence becoming the victim to his own actions.
A joint UK/USA/Greece project, D’Agostino stars Keith Roenke, Michael Angels, Torie Tyson, and Jorge Ameer. Executive producers are Jorge Ameer, Fanis Kavalari, Thomas Likourinos, and Irini Likouri.
