CHRIS LOWELL’S DIRECTORIAL DEBUT FILM BESIDE STILL WATERS SET FOR NOVEMBER RELEASE
“An ode to the consoling power of deep, abiding friendships.” – San Francisco Chronicle
“Stunning in its simplicity, but also ovation-worthy in its visual audacity.”
– Entertainment Tonight
TRIBECA FILM WILL RELEASE BESIDE STILL WATERS ON NOVEMBER 14TH THEATRICALLY AND ON NOVEMBER 18TH DIGITALLY
Directed, produced and co-written by Lowell with co-writer Mohit Narang, the film stars Ryan Eggold (“The Blacklist”), Beck Bennett (“Saturday Night Live”), Brett Dalton (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), Erin Darke, Jessy Hodges, Will Brill, Britt Lower and Reid Scott (“Veep”).
Blending 16mm, Super 8mm & Lowell’s own B&W photography, Beside Still Waters received overwhelming support from its innovative Kickstarter campaign, where it quickly became the 13th most-funded narrative film of all time, and the only one of the top 100 to more than triple its goal, which was surpassed on the second day of a month-long campaign.
Winner of both the Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2013 Austin Film Festival, Beside Still Waters is about Daniel Thatcher (Ryan Eggold), a young romantic who has recently fallen on hard times, who enlists his childhood friends to relive the glory days of their youth, whether they like it or not.
Jason Potash and Paul Finkel produced through their Storyboard Entertainment banner and Lowell, Narang, and Steven Gorel also served as producers.
