You might have heard by now but just in case you didn’t, ShortFilmTexas sends out a big congratulations to the cast and crew of writer / director Jason Marlow‘s “The Big Bends” on being selected to play at the Cannes Film Festival!
“The Big Bends” is Jason’s debut as writer/director so can you imagine how incredible that would be? While writing his first feature in Paris, homesickness inspired him to write a story about a place that he didn’t know existed but knew where he hoped he could find it.
After being diagnosed with a terminal disease, Warren chooses to pass his remaining days isolated in the Badlands of Big Bend. Within the vast landscape he locks himself inside of a small camper trailer and waits for death. The hush is broken as he is faced with a troubled Mexican couple crossing the border. The cast includes Jimmy Lee Jr., Giovanni Antonello and Rocio Garza.
