From the Press Release
Black Out Films and Random Bench Productions are excited to announce the world premiere of Toad Road at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montréal. Jason Banker (Teenage Paparazzo, My Name is Faith) directed and produced his first narrative feature, Toad Road, in collaboration with producers Liz Levine (Camp Hollywood, Finite & Infinite Games) and Adrian Salpeter (The French Guy, Finite & Infinite Games). Toad Road displays a disturbing portrait of contemporary youth culture where the lines between perception and reality are blurred with often frightening results.
“I’m excited to premiere Toad Road at Fantasia International! It is great to be recognized by a festival that supports transgressive and outsider cinema,” says Banker.
“Jason Banker has crafted an exceptional film that we are proud to bring to Fantasia,” says Levine. “He is among the finest New York filmmakers of his generation,” adds Salpeter.
The Fantasia Festival kicked off July 19th and continues on through August 7th in Montréal, Canada, with the Fantasia Film Market making its debut from July 26-29, 2012.
Inspired by an urban legend, Toad Road is an intimate meditation on lost youth evocative of Gus Van Sant (with a racy touch of Larry Clark) and a radical deconstruction of genre cinema, a devastating and brilliant object of contemplation and dread, and a journey down unexpected paths.
