Sound of Violence was written and directed by Alex Noyer (808, SXSW 2015), produced by Hannu Aukia (Someone Somewhere, Conductor), Alex Noyer, and is Executive Produced by Mike Macari (Executive Producer of The Ring trilogy).
The film stars Jasmin Savoy Brown (the upcoming Scream revival, HBO’s “The Leftovers”), Lili Simmons (Showtime’s “Ray Donovan”, “Banshee”, Bone Tomahawk), James Jagger (HBO’s “Vinyl”, The Outpost) and Tessa Munro (CBS’s “S.W.A.T.”).
Gravitas Ventures provided the following statement from the filmmaker: “I’ve been lucky to be surrounded by people who believed in my idea of an artist in lieu of a killer. From our amazing lead Jasmin Savoy Brown to my producing partner Hannu Aukia, to our cast and crew, this movie came together because of confidence in that vision. Gravitas showed us that same confidence. I am delighted for them to bring it to North American audiences so soon after our World premiere at SXSW.”
Synopsis: Alexis recovered her hearing after witnessing the brutal murder of her family when she was ten. The visceral experience awakened synesthetic abilities in her and started her on an orphaned path of self-discovery through the healing tones of brutal violence. She goes on to pursue a career teaching and experimenting to find new sounds. She is supported and loved by her roommate Marie who is unaware of the dark secrets behind Alexis’ unique music and the part she unknowingly plays. Faced with the likelihood of losing her hearing again, Alexis escalates her pursuit of her masterpiece through gruesome sound experiments and devastating designs. She won’t let anything stop her, not even love.
