Spaghetti western meets dystopian sci-fi in a twisted new throwback to the good old days of cinemas’ past. Filmed in glorious 35mm and featuring real-life stunts, The Archivist is sure to please fans of the old-school and new seeking something fresh in a sometimes-stale landscape. Give the bonkers trailer a spin embedded at the top of the article.
In the year 2070, Calder Benson is a government Archivist Officer charged by an increasingly invasive and restrictive government to destroy all elements and remnants of his society’s self-indulgent and avaricious past.
The Archivist is directed by Eric Hand from a screenplay he co-wrote with Bo Gardner; the film stars Eric Hand, Dale Shumate, Butch Thompson, and Jennifer Giles.
