Watch: Trailer for SXSW Best Actor Winner ‘Hunter Gatherer’
The Orchard has debuted a full trailer for Josh Locy’s feature-length debut Hunter Gatherer, starring “The Wire” favorite Andre Royo (who took home the SXSW Jury Prize for Best Actor).
The film follows the one-time ex-con trying to prove himself to the woman he still loves. “All I do is try to get her to fall in love with me again.” “Did she love you before?” “Yes she did.” “Then she’ll love you again.”
Also starring George Sample III, Kellee Stewart and Ashley Wilkerson, and executive produced by David Gordon Green, Hunter Gatherer opens in limited release on November 16th. Check out the trailer and poster below.
“What are you doing with all of these?” “I’m making my money. You know the county charges $100 to throw away a fridge I got a business where I only charge $75 per fridge and we dispose of them for you.”
Ashley Douglas thinks everything should fall into place when he’s released after three years in prison. His friends should come to his welcome home party. (They don’t.) His girlfriend, Linda, should greet him with open arms and open legs. (She doesn’t.) So Ashley, a forty-something African-American, restarts his life with next to nothing: no friends, no lovers, no connections. He has is a bedroom in his mom’s house, a box of treasures he buried in his back yard, and a nostalgic and deeply ingrained need to be with Linda-his one, true love. That is, until he meets a new friend, Jeremy, and things start to turn around.
