SXSW 2011: First Images - Silver Bullets
We have got some fresh and wolfy (not your typical combination) new images from Joe Swanberg's new flick, Silver Bullets, officially on tap for you to dig upon! Get them while they're hairy!
Inspired by Chekhov's The Seagull, Silver Bullets examines the cinema and asks questions about art, commerce, power and desire. Using David Foster Wallace as a reference point, the film also explores fame, depression and suicide.
The flick will be having its premiere this March at the upcoming SXSW Film Conference in Austin, Texas. Keep it here for more as it comes.
Claire, a beautiful young actress, is in a comfortable relationship with Ethan, a filmmaker who aspires to make meaningful art films. She is his muse and they are finishing a project together. She accepts the lead role in a werewolf film by a talented young horror director named Ben. Ethan is instantly wary of her relationship with Ben and suspects she is more interested in fame than the pursuit of art.
As Claire and Ben prepare the werewolf film together, Ethan begins to spiral into depression and self-doubt. In retaliation against Claire, he casts her best friend, Charlie, also an actress, as his girlfriend in his new film. As both productions move forward, Claire's life becomes more surreal and starts to resemble the werewolf film she is working on.
