Yarnmaker sci-fi film Cough has picked up three more screenings to round out October.
Straight after the previously announced Screamfest screening in LA, we jump south to Texas for the Flatland Film Festival on 19 October 2013, screening in HD. Director Jason Kempnich is a Flatland alumni, having screened there with his previous film Unrepentant.
Then it's north to Michigan for Thriller! Chiller! on 26 October 2013, a sci-fi and horror specific genre festival that the Cough team are excited to be screening at.
Finally, we move to the other side of the world and return to London for the Crystal Palace International Film Festival screening on 2 November 2013 at the festival's very popular Halloween themed night.
Cough stars Robert Coleby (Tracks, Terra Nova, The Marine) and Christopher Sommers (Predestination, Terra Nova, The Horseman), with Natalie Trent and Dan Eady. Written and directed by Jason Kempnich, it features 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 film asks the question - how far is too far? Sometimes you have to fight to hold on to your civil liberties, and do what is best for those around you.
