Mondo artist Jay Shaw has created a striking new poster for Drafthouse Films' Graceland, the intense Filipino thriller from Ron Morales. Read about it:
Drafthouse Films and Mondo, the collectable boutique art division of the Alamo Drafthouse, are proud to unveil the alternate one-sheet poster for Ron Morales' Filipino thriller, Graceland, designed by Mondo artist Jay Shaw. The poster will be available for purchase as a limited edition 18"x24" screen print via the Drafthouse Films website. One hundred and fifty (150) limited-edition prints can be purchased starting April 26th to coincide with the film's theatrical release. Graceland is also now available on iTunes and Video OnDemand platforms and will be in theaters on Friday, 4/26.
Unpredictable and gripping, Graceland mesmerized audiences at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival Festival and last year's Fantastic Fest. Set in the seedy underbelly of Manilla, Graceland follows family man Marlon Villar —a longtime chauffeur to corrupt a Filipino politician — who is faced with an unthinkable predicament when he gets ambushed while driving both his boss’s twelve year-old girl and his own daughter home from school one afternoon. In the chaos of the kidnapping attempt, things go horribly awry and Marlon’s child is taken and held for ransom instead. As events progress wildly unaccording to plan, Marlon is forced into a rapid downward spiral of deceit and betrayal that will leave no one innocent.
Be on the lookout for my interview with Graceland writer/director Ron Morales in the coming days, and be sure to catch this riveting film on VOD today or in theaters as of Friday.
