Los Angeles, CA, July 19, 2016
There are over 110 million active landmines in 68 countries around the world. If you step on one, there’s only one thing to do. STAND is a dramatic thriller that deals with two brothers in that precarious situation in the jungles of Vietnam. The film, directed by Cosmos Kiindarius, will be screened for the NewFilmMakersLA film festival at 1139 S. Hill St., Los Angeles, on July 30th, at 9:15pm. (An 8:30pm reception with a complimentary open bar precedes the event).
“I learned a lot in my time working with David Fincher, about telling personal stories, considering my audience in every choice I make, and not worrying about changing the world. I don’t think I can change the world; but I do think that I can make interesting movies that inspire people to think and maybe even get involved. Movies can entertain and inform. It is my hope that STAND does both.”- Cosmos Kiindarius, Director.
NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization designed to showcase innovative works by emerging filmmakers from around the world. “This remarkable film explores universal themes of family, introspection, and the human spirit in a beautifully honest way. NewFilmmakers Los Angeles is proud to host the premiere of Cosmos Kiindarius’ feature film.” – Alexandra Diantgikis, NewFilmmakers Los Angeles.
STAND was picked up for worldwide distribution by Glass House Distribution, a new and emerging distribution company based in NY. “We knew right away that this film, with its precise acting and slow ratcheting of tension to an extraordinary build, would be something people wanted to see. On top of that, there’s a social message here about awareness of a danger that exists,” said Tom Malloy, co-head of Glass House Distribution.
The film will be released world wide and on VOD in the fall of 2016.
