(Los Angeles, CA) – July 29, 2020. FRIGHTFEST, UK’s leading genre film festival, has just announced the selection of Francesco Giannini’s debut pandemic feature HALL for a World Premiere presentation on August 30th at 6:00PM local time.
The anticipated high-tension thriller about a scary virus outbreak will be available to a worldwide highly curated audience during the virtual festival held exceptionally this year in August 2020.
HALL tells the story of Naomi, a Japanese runaway wife, and Val, a helpless young mother, both struggling to escape an abusive relationship as well as a hotel hallway, which has been infected by a mysterious airborne virus killing everyone rapidly. In this isolated and despairing space, fear becomes viral as the women run for their lives. In the face of contamination, is there hope at the end of the hall?
Encountering the special circumstances around the pandemic happening in the world right now, HALL coincidentally captures the intrinsic sense of dread that people in society are experiencing yet in an even more visceral manner.
Starring Japanese star Yumiko Shaku as Naomi, Carolina Bartczak as Val, Mark Gibson as Branden, Julian Richings as Julian and Bailey Thain as Kelly, Hall is a Franky Films production. Director: Francesco Giannini. Producers: Francesco Giannini, Tamara Dupuis , and Daniel Roy. Writers: Derrick Adams, Adam Kolodny and Francesco Giannini. Cinematographer: Graham Guertin Santerre. Production Design: Gillian Nasser. Music By: Michael Vignola.
