‘The Transfiguration’ Trailer Has a Taste For Blood (SXSW)

Published

on

L.A.-based Strand Releasing released the following trailer ahead of the SXSW premiere of Michael O’Shea’s atmospheric New York tale The Transfiguration, which world-premiered at Cannes’ Un Certain Regard.

The Transfiguration marks the feature debut of writer-director Michael O’Shea, and stars Eric Ruffin along with Chloe Levine (Savage Youth).

An elevated genre film dealing with love, loss and vampires, The Transfiguration stars Ruffin as a 14-year-old misfit who gets bullied at school and immerses himself in the world of vampires to escape his solitude when he returns home.

“Mr. O’Shea’s film is a unique hybrid that audiences and critics will be compelled by,” said Strand Releasing’s partner Jon Gerrans, who discovered the film at Cannes.

The Transfiguration was produced by Susan Leber, whose credits include Debra Granik’s Sundance prize winner, Down To The Bone, and Ti West’s feature debut, The Roost.
