After acquiring North American distribution rights back in May, Dark Sky Films has announced that the pandemic thriller Before the Fire will be available in virtual cinemas and on digital platforms/VOD on August 14th.
Before the Fire comes from female duo Charlie Buhler, who made her directorial debut, and Jenna Lyng Adams of Netflix series "The Kominsky Method," who wrote and stars in the film.
"Brimming with tension and paranoia, and featuring a tough-as-nails performance from its lead actress, the pre-apocalyptic road movie Before the Fire is a shockingly timely tale of the strength of the human spirit against seemingly insurmountable odds."
In the film, "As a global pandemic engulfs Los Angeles, rising TV star Ava Boone (Adams) is forced to flee the mounting chaos and return to her rural hometown. As she struggles to acclimate to a way of life she left behind long ago, her homecoming attracts a dangerous figure from her past - threatening both her and the family that serves as her only sanctuary."
Adams is joined by Jackson Davis ("Vida"), Ryan Vigilant (Naked As We Came) and Charles Hubbell.
