Watch: Jamie Chung Stars in Megan Griffiths' 'Eden' Theatrical Trailer
"Nothing short of gripping." Phase 4 Films has debuted the theatrical trailer for one of SXSW 2012's big hits, the Audience Award winner, a film called Eden directed by Megan Griffiths. It stars Jamie Chung as a young Korean-American girl, captured and forced into a prostitution ring for two years. The plot seems to involve her inspiring hope in the other girls, but she also "ensures her own survival by carving out power and influence" in the human and drug trafficking ring. The supporting cast includes Beau Bridges, Scott Mechlowicz, Matt O'Leary and many others. Music is a bit cheesy, but otherwise it doesn't look too bad.
Watch the theatrical trailer for Megan Griffiths' Eden, originally in high def from Apple:
Eden, a young Korean-American girl, is abducted near her home and forced into prostitution by a domestic human and drug trafficking ring. Throughout the two years she is held, Eden reluctantly ensures her own survival by carving out power and influence within the very organization that has imprisoned her. Inspired by a harrowing true story, Eden peers into the darkest corners and attempts to discover humanity within.
Eden is directed by emerging American filmmaker Megan Griffiths, of The Off Hours and a few shorts. This first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in 2012, where it won the Audience Award & Emerging Woman Award. Phase 4 Films is releasing Eden in limited theaters starting on March 20th coming up.
