Writer/Director Jason Kempnich is pleased to announce the World and US premiere of the latest Yarnmaker film, Cough, will be at the 17th annual Indie Gathering International Film Festival in Ohio, USA, Saturday 17th August 2013.
Cough stars Robert Coleby (Tracks, Terra Nova, The Marine) and Christopher Sommers (Predestination, Terra Nova, The Horseman), with Natalie Trent and Dan Eady, with moody cinematography by Graeme McMahon and evocative music by Davin Patterson.
Set a few years from today, Cough explores a dystopian future where a pandemic has forced governments worldwide to heavily curtail the movements of citizens for their own survival. In the rush to survive, civil liberties are forgotten. The inevitable food shortages force recently widowed George (Robert Coleby) to stray far from home to survive. A simple purchase of rations derails when George stumbles upon the secret of a Shopkeeper (Christopher Sommers), placing all of them in mortal jeopardy.
The film asks the question - how far is too far? Sometimes you have to fight to hold on to your civil liberties.
Cough is the third film from Director Jason Kempnich and Yarnmaker. It is Yarnmaker's most ambitious film to date, requiring city streets to be closed for filming, and months of post-production CGI work to bring the dystopian city to life.
