Reeling from the unexpected death of her husband, Beth (Rebecca Hall) is left alone in the lakeside home he built for her. She tries as best she can to keep together—but then the dreams come.

What she finds are secrets both strange and terrible and a mystery she’s determined to resolve.
Ava DuVernay’s arts and social impact collective ARRAY announced “Liberated Territory: A Masterclass with Haile Gerima,” a five-day storytelling workshop taking place at the Array Creative Campus in Los Angeles this September.
“Mr. Haile Gerima is the reason I was inspired to create my own film distribution company and he is, very simply, one of my heroes,” DuVernay added in the release. “He disrupted the system long before anyone was willing to take notice and continues to chart his own path. Launching the ARRAY Masterclass program with Mr. Gerima is a surreal once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I can’t wait to watch him in action as he shares his filmmaking expertise with the next wave of disruptive filmmakers at our liberated territory, the ARRAY Creative Campus.”
Applications for the masterclass open from now until Aug. 9 at www.arraynow.com/masterclass.
Redbox Entertainment and Quiver Distribution have nabbed the North American rights to “Bandit,” a true-crime thriller starring Josh Duhamel, Elisha Cuthbert, Nestor Carbonell and Mel Gibson.
Directed by Allan Ungar and written by Kraig Wenman, the film is based on Robert Knuckle’s best-selling novel “The Flying Bandit,” which follows the true story of Gilbert Galvan Jr. (Duhamel), who successfully got away with 63 bank and jewelry heists during his crime spree. When he escapes from a U.S. prison and changes his identity in Canada, he gets involved with gangster Tommy (Gibson), further complicating his life of crime.
“Bandit” is produced by Jordan Yale Levine and Jordan Beckerman of Yale Productions, Eric Gozlan of Goldrush Entertainment and Ryan Donnell Smith of Thomasville Pictures.
“We are incredibly excited to be working with the teams at Redbox and Quiver on the release of ‘Bandit,’” Levine and Beckerman said. “We know this film will appeal to audiences around the country, and Redbox is the perfect partner to give everyone a chance to see it.”
