Sundance Photo/Trailer Preview: Obselidia


Director/screenwriter Diane Bell‘s Obselidia is one of 16 films selected from 1,058 submissions for the Dramatic Competition for the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. Described as a “save-the-world love story”, the film tells the story of a lonely librarian believes love is obsolete until a road trip to Death Valley with a beguiling cinema projectionist teaches him otherwise. Shot on the Red Camera, featuring a score by UK musician Liam Howe (Spin Spin Sugar, 6 Underground) and starring a mostly unknown cast Gaynor Howe (Home and Away), Michael Piccirilli, and Frank Hoyt Taylor. Sundance calls the film “soft spoken, profound, and disarmingly charming” offering a “rare and humane lens through which we can view a world increasingly preoccupied with and inhabited by extinction.” A few more photos, trailer and poster, after the jump.
