What is it about seeing the world turn to complete crap that we as society love to see. The fact that post apocalyptic movies have been insanely popular for the last 60 years and show no signs of slowly down. It also explains the results of our last election. People just want to see it all turn to crap! I digress, Go North (directed by Matt Ogen) looks to be like a cool entry into the post apocalyptic library. Shot here in Detroit and distributed by Gunpowder & Sky Distribution, Go North hits VOD and Select theaters this January. Check out the poster and trailer below.
GO NORTH, hits select U.S. theaters and on VOD nationwide January 13, 2017!
In the aftermath of an unknown catastrophe, a community left with zero living adults has descended into a modern-day Lord of the Flies, run by a small cabal of what had been the jocks occupying the athletic and social upper crust of the local high school, headed by Caleb (Patrick Schwarzenegger).
Faced with the bleak despair of their situation, Josh (Jacob Lofland) and Jessie (Sophie Kennedy Clark) strike out on a dangerous journey into the unknown to find family and hope for the future, with Caleb and his vicious underling Gentry (James Bloor) in hot pursuit.
GO NORTH is the narrative debut of Emmy-nominated documentarian Matt Ogens (MEET THE HITLERS) and was Executive Produced by Morgan Spurlock (SUPER SIZE ME, RATS). Its haunting, evocative score was composed by Death Cab for Cutie’s Chris Walla.
