Julius Amedume’s neo-noir psychological thriller “Rattlesnakes,” rock documentary “Suzi Q” and the elevated horror thriller “Itsy Bitsy” are among the new titles that Kew Media Distribution will be introducing to buyers at Berlin’s European Film Market, which kicks off Thursday.
They join a slate that includes three buzz-worthy documentaries: Rodney Ascher’s “Glitch in the Matrix, Michael Jackson expose “Leaving Neverland,” one of the talking points at Sundance, and Nick Broomfield’s “Marianne & Leonard – Words of Love,” also a hot title in Park City.
Scripted and directed by Amedume, “Rattlesnakes” tells the story of California life guru and family man Robert McQueen. What begins as a typical day of therapy sessions with his clients takes a turn for the worse… He’s expecting to meet a regular client in a rented apartment, but instead he’s ambushed by three masked men and held hostage.
McQueen is accused of sleeping with each man’s wife. He pleads his innocence, but faced with being beaten and tortured, what he reveals will change all of their lives forever.The film stars Jimmy Jean-Louis (“Claws,” “Monster In-Law,” “Heroes”), Robinne Lee (“Hitch,” “Fifty Shades Darker,” “Fifty Shades Freed”) and Jack Coleman (“Dynasty,” “Heroes”). Jean-Louis produced the film, with Nik Powell (“The Crying Game”) executive producing. It is a Jet Media Production in conjunction with Hollywood Entertainment Productions and Scala Productions.https://variety.com/2019/film/news/berlin-film-festival-rattlesnakes-jimmy-jean-louis-kew-1203127674/
