SAG-AFTRA is co-sponsoring the Spotlight on Colorado screenings of Walden: Life in the Woods. Made under a SAG-AFTRA Low Budget Agreement, the film is a radical Western reimagining Henry David Thoreau’s eponymous classic. Taking place over 24 hours, it interlaces three narratives about the trappings of 21st century life and the unlikely heroes who dream dangerously of escape.
Co-starring T.J. Miller (Deadpool, Cloverfield, Silicon Valley), Chris Sullivan (This Is Us) and Demián Bichir (The Hateful Eight; Alien: Covenant; Weeds; Un Cuento de Circo & a Love Song, DFF39). The film also brings together a team of Colorado filmmakers, including director Alex Harvey, producers Mitch Dickman (Hanna Ranch, DFF37; Rolling Papers) and Shane Boris, writer Adam Chanzit, and musician-animator Laura Goldhamer.
Colorado’s filmmaking scene continues to grow becoming more diverse and collaborative, producing works that screen not only in film festivals but theatrically around the country.
