It was announced a few days ago that Walking Out will be screening at Giffoni festival next July 19. The Alex and Andrew J. Smith movie tells the story about a father and son who must fight to survive, starred by Matt Bomer, Josh Wiggins, Bill Pullman and Lily Gladstone.
“Our third feature, WALKING OUT, takes a timeless, archetypal story to absolute extremity: a father and son, at odds with each other, are forced by lethal circumstance to bond in the wilderness during a hunting trip. […] Our film asks: What sacrifices are necessary for survival? What is the right way to become a man? The main theme of Walking Out is this search for KNOWLEDGE. David, our hero, a modern, ‘plugged-in’ city mouse teenager—goes on a brutal yet profound journey into the heart of the Mountain. It is an epic voyage that takes him from ‘alien’ to ‘integrated’, from ‘arm’s length’ to the deepest embrace imaginable, from innocence to experience. Our main cinematic goal is to present his evolution—as he arcs from ‘not knowing’ to ‘knowing’—as a map of healing. As a possible way forward”.
The film is on official competition, and you can read more about the festival at the official website
