86 Melrose Avenue Trailer

"Have you ever sacrificed everything for your country?" Gravitas has released a trailer for an indie hostage thriller titled 86 Melrose Avenue, the latest film written & directed & produced by Lebanese filmmaker Lili Matta. An ex-marine with PTSD storms into a gallery, taking hostages and forcing them to confront their own complex past and looming mortality, as time ticks by. Starring Dada Elza and Jim O'Heir, with a cast including Anastasia Antonia, Gregory Zarian, Terri Ivens, Langstone Fishburne, Michael Polak, Andy Evans, Richard Sabine, Helen Kennedy, and Gary Sturm. It looks like another attempt to comment on the PTSD crisis in America and how hard it is to overcome the trauma of war. Have a look.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Lili Matta's 86 Melrose Avenue, direct from YouTube:

It's also produced by Lili Matta, and co-produced by Alexandre Wilson. This first premiered at the Show Low Film Festival last year.
