Mon Ami director Rob Grant‘s Harpoon, an upcoming Canadian dark comedy, is making its world premiere at the 48th International Film Festival Rotterdam, taking place January 23rd – February 3rd, 2019 in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
Today, we have the film's poster to share with you, designed by celebrated sci-fi and fantasy artist Christopher Shy, who recently designed the poster for Panos Cosmatos' Mandy.
Shot in Calgary, Alberta and San Pedro, Belize, and written by Grant, Harpoon is described as "a brutal and absurd genre film that brings a new twist to the lost at sea genre."
"With his perfect family and perfect upbringing, Richard (Christopher Gray) appears to have it all. So when he thinks that his long-term girlfriend, Sasha (Emily Tyra), and best-friend, Jonah (Munro Chambers), are having an affair, it sends him into a fit of rage that leaves Jonah a bloody mess. Once Jonah and Sasha convince Richard the allegations are false, Richard tries to buy back their trust by taking them out for a day-trip on his family’s yacht.
Tension boils-over once out to sea, and, to make matters worse, the yacht’s engine fails. Stranded without food and supplies, the trio must set aside their differences in order to survive."
Harpoon also stars with comedian Brett Gelman and is produced by Michael Peterson (Alive), Kurtis David Harder (What Keeps You Alive) and Julian Black Antelope (Knuckleball).
