Indie Trailer Sunday: Trippy Spanish Dark Fantasy Film 'Verbo'
Whoa… We won't be running an Indie Trailer Sunday next week (because it's Comic-Con!) so I thought I'd feature something very special, and totally trippy, for your viewing pleasure today (courtesy of Twitch). The film is called Verbo and it is the feature directorial debut of acclaimed Madrid-born filmmaker Eduardo Chapero-Jackson. It's a "dark fantasy thriller" about a teenage girl who "doesn't understand the world in which she lives." It's kind of hard to describe, but boy is this trailer a trip to watch. Even after watching it, I still don't know what heck is going on, but I think it looks very unique and I'm interested in checking it out.
Watch the trailer for Eduardo Chapero-Jackson's Verbo:
Sara is a teenager who doesn't understand the world in which she lives. Her search for meaning will lead her to a secret world, where she will embark upon a great adventure in which life and death are at stake.
Verbo is both written and directed by famed Spanish filmmaker Eduardo Chapero-Jackson, who is making his feature debut after directing highly acclaimed short films including Contracuerpo, Alumbramiento, and The End in '08. It was produced by Belén Atienza & Álvaro Augustín, two producers behind The Orphanage and Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth as well. The film will be released in Spain later this year, but does not have a US distributor, nor has it played at any film festivals (as far as we know). Stay tuned for updates.

Sweet. It has a graphic novel type feel to it.

At the end there is looks like they might be doing some rotoscoping, like in A Scanner Darkly... or A-Ha's Take On Me. 😛

WTF? No seriously...WTF? P.S. Am I still tripped or does the guy at 0:22 looks totally like Joseph Fiennes from "FlashForward" ?
