40min · Short, Drama, Music · 1 January 2015
A psychological drama set in the Old West, 'Upon the Awful Tree' combines suspense and black humor with the classic elements of Spaghetti Westerns. Wealthy and devout rancher Wallace Hardman camps out with his daughter Sally and a team of men when an exotic stranger arrives in the night revealing an awful truth: the dark hearts of men. Stunning imagery coupled with a rich, original, award-winning orchestral score and thoughtful sound design propel the drama without the use of dialogue as the characters' morality is challenged through that terrible night around the campfire. Filmed on untamed natural and historic locations in Texas this artful and authentic indie Western is sure to surprise as a wild ride for the eyes, ears, and the immortal soul!
