I’m always game to experience something unique, and it sounds like award-winning Spanish filmmaker, David González Rudiez has the cojones to be bold behind the camera and deliver something that moves against the grain. His new film, Arder is a silent production and that alone has my interest piqued, to put it mildly.
Arder is tapped to premiere at the 50th International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia (Sitges) in the competitive Noves Visions Section.
We’ve got a look at the trailer and poster for you below, but before you jump into that, take a peek at a few further details on the film, in addition to a small gallery.
ARDER, written and directed by David González Rudiez is a silent movie with no musical accompaniment that tells the story of a man’s journey into darkness.
Asier Hernandez plays the leading role. He started acting at Eloy de la Iglesia’s OTRA VUELTA DE TUERCA film. Since then he has worked in cinema, television and theatre. He has appeared in YOYES (Helena Taberna), MENSAKA (Salvador García Ruiz) and AUNDIYA (Jon Garaño-Aitor Arregi) among other films.
Madrid. Nearby the M30. A nameless man goes tirelessly against the current of the constant traffic. In one pocket he has a map. In the other, several charms like a broken compass, a powerful dice, a magic stone and a coin cell battery that always reflects the full moon.
The night. The journey. The devil. A flute and a tune.
A beginning and an ending.
