Trailer For Nic Gorman's 'HUMAN TRACES'

Press release: Clay Epstein’s Film Mode Entertainment is pleased to announce the North American sale of HUMAN TRACES to Gravitas Ventures. The deal was secured during AFM in Los Angeles between Epstein on behalf of HUMAN TRACES and Film Mode Entertainment and John Spector, Director of Acquisitions for Gravitas Ventures.

“Buyers and audiences are sure to enjoy HUMAN TRACES. It’s a remarkable, thrilling film with highly impressive production value and performances, and I’m thrilled to once again be working with Josh Spector and the Gravitas Ventures team on another exceptional release.” Said Epstein, President of Film Mode Entertainment.

HUMAN TRACES stars Mark Mitchinson who’s known worldwide for his performances in THE HOBBIT franchise, as well as newcomer Vinnie Bennett, who starred alongside Scarlett Johansen in GHOST IN THE SHELL, an official TIFF 2017 Rising Star and one of the next generation’s actors poised for international success. The film also stars Sophie Henderson, who has developed an immense following and fan-base from her roles in POWER RANGERS, FANTAIL, and THE MOST FUN YOU CAN HAVE DYING.

“Nic Gorman has crafted an extraordinary psychological thriller and we are proud to be partnering once again with Clay and Film Mode on another spectacular film,” said Spector, Director of Acquisitions for Gravitas Ventures.

After a successful run at TIFF (the Toronto International Film Festival), the psychological thriller HUMAN TRACES continued to make its mark at AFM, alongside a number of other films that Epstein and Film Mode Entertainment had prepared, all of which focus on addressing a variety of needs in the marketplace and filling the hole for films.

Strategically filmed on the isolated islands to the south of New Zealand, HUMAN TRACES commences when a mysterious young man arrives on a remote Sub-Antarctic research station.

When secrets threaten the relationship of a married couple working on the island, the captivating story of psychological tension begins. The film fearlessly tackles the timely global issues surrounding the ecosystem. Between an underlying feeling of isolation and the intense cinematography of the New Zealand shore, the suspense-filled storyline is a mesmerizing experience to which everyone can relate in one way or another.

HUMAN TRACES hails from New Zealand where it’s receiving numerous accolades for its timeliness and global relevance, and is the feature directorial debut of Nic Gorman (HERE BE MONSTERS).

The film was produced by Nadia Maxwell of Overactive Imagination with investment from the New Zealand Film Commission and Random Films.

Film Mode Entertainment represents worldwide rights for HUMAN TRACES outside of Australia and New Zealand.
