K5 to bring Stephen Fingleton’s Thriller ‘The Survivalist’ to AFM
05 Nov 2014 : Deirdre Molumby
Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur’s K5 Intl. has taken international rights to writer/director Stephen Fingleton’s thriller “The Survivalist,” and added the film to its AFM slate.

‘The Survivalist’ is a dystopian thriller set in a time of starvation, where a lone man lives off a small plot of land hidden deep in forest, protecting his crop from intruders with his shotgun and improvised traps. But the long years alone have taken their toll on him, and he is beginning to lose his grip on reality.

Everything changes when a starving woman and her teenage daughter discover the farm. Desperate for food and shelter, the mother offers up her daughter to spend the night with him in return for bed and board. Overcome with desire, the man breaks his strict code of self-preservation and accepts them into his cabin. As the exchange becomes an uneasy ongoing arrangement, the women plot to get rid of him and have the farm for themselves.

Fingleton’s credits include ‘Magpie’, ‘SLR’, and ‘Shirin’. His new feature stars Martin McCann (‘Shadow Dancer’, ‘’71’, ‘Clash of the Titans’), Mia Goth (‘Nymphomaniac’) and Olwen Fouere (‘This Must Be the Place’). The script was featured on the 2012 Hollywood Blacklist as well as the 2013 Brit List.

Wayne Marc Godfrey, Robert Jones and David Gilbery produced and financed ‘The Survivalist’ through The Fyzz Facility. The film was shot in Northern Ireland, and was developed and funded by Northern Ireland Screen and the BFI.

Simon said, “‘The Survivalist’ is bold, smart and raw, and at times erotic too. It’s intelligent genre cinema at its best and Stephen Fingleton is a genuine new talent.”

K5 will also bring Caryn Waechter’s “The Sisterhood of Night,” starring Georgie Henley, Kara Hayward, Kal Penn and Laura Fraser with a story by Pulitzer Price winning author Steven Millhauser to AFM. Also on the slate are German horror film ‘Der Nachtmahr’ (‘The Nightmare’) directed by artist and film-maker Akiz, Chet Baker project ‘Born To Be Blue’ starring Ethan Hawke, and Armie Hammer thriller ‘Mine’.
