Writer/director Alec Tibaldi’s feature film debut the powerful coming of age drama “Spiral Farm,” starring Piper De Palma (daughter of iconic film director Brian De Palma) in her captivating breakout feature film debut as the luminescent central character Anahita. Indican Pictures is releasing “Spiral Farm” theatrically in multiple markets including Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago, among others.
“Spiral Farm” stars Piper De Palma (Anahita), as a 17 year old teenage girl growing up on a commune where her life is very much dedicated to the care of others. She finds her very organized existence disrupted by the arrival of two outsiders, which causes her world of obligation and community to be cracked wide open. With these strangers comes the opportunity for a new exotic future all her own—if she’s willing to step forward, abandoning all that she’s ever known and take it. How brave or is it reckless, are we willing to be to get what we think that we want? De Palma stars alongside enigmatic screen veterans Amanda Plummer (Ryan Murphy’s upcoming “Ratched,” “Pulp Fiction,” “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”), and Jade Fusco (“Youth in Revolt,” “ Wonder Valley”), joined by Sara Anne (“Public Disturbance, “Open Season”), and Landen Beattie (“Jane the Virgin,” “The Box”) as the only family she’s ever known. Our charismatic outsiders bringing with them the promise of a more exciting present and future, are Cosimo Fusco (“Angels & Demons,” “Gone in Sixty Seconds”), and Teo Halm (“Earth to Echo,” “Memoria,”and Music Producer of Beyonce’s Lion King and Donald Glover’s Guava Island).
Many thanks for your coverage consideration as always! Your support of independent film is invaluable in the discovery of gifted new filmmakers and truly greatly appreciated.
The film is a haunting look at families in the modern age where utopia is not always what it seems, but it challenges audiences perceptions of what communes are, who the people that make them up consist of and why we should not be so quick to judge those that live differently than ourselves.
