For immediate Release
Los Angeles, California May 15, 2013 – New World Distribution releases “The Battle for Bunker Hill” worldwide on Google Play, You Tube Movie Rentals, Viaway, Amazon, Sony Playstation and I-tunes with many more platforms to follow. NWD will also be taking the film to the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.
“The Battle of Bunker Hill” begins its story when former Wall Street executive Peter Salem is released from prison. Peter heads for the small town of Bunker Hill, Kansas, where his ex-wife and their children have started a new life. Soon after he arrives in town, all power is lost – there is no electricity, and cars and computers suddenly shut down. Community leaders are at a loss to explain. Is it the rapture? A massive terrorist attack? Aliens?
Cut off from the world, the town’s militant past is reawakened and forces coalesce to protect citizens from an unseen enemy, represented to some by Mr. Farook, an elderly Pakistani immigrant who owns the local convenience store. The town’s fear leads to the creation of a posse of gunmen, resulting in torture, illegal searches and eventually murder.
The film includes a stellar cast of Saeed Jaffrey (Gandhi), James McDaniel (NYPD Blue), Laura Kirk (Lisa Picard is Famous) and Blake Robbins (The Office).
The film’s director is Kevin Wilmott. “When writing fiction, you always hope that you’re on to something that reflects what is actually going on in the world,” said Willmott. “The Battle for Bunker Hill tells a pretty wild story that is amazingly close to what has really happened to us since 9/11, right up to the Tea Party, the 2012 presidential election campaign and beyond.”
The Battle for Bunker Hill was named Best Feature at The Hoboken Film Festival, the opening night film at The Williamstown Film Festival, and was an official selection of The El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz Global Human Rights Film Festival in New York City and The Kent Film Festival in Connecticut. The film has had advance screenings at The Tribeca Film Center in New York; The Santa Fe Film Center; at an event in Washington, DC hosted by the ACLU; at New York University at an event hosted by the Council on American Islamic Relations and other Islamic civil rights groups; Vassar College; the Brown v. Board National Historic Site; and The University of Massachusetts.
Cary Floyd, CCO of New World Distribution, states, “In the world of independent filmmaking, it is rare to come across a film that not only has a great cast and storytelling, but has the production values of a major studio release.”
