Today brings the debut of the trailer for the western "Dead Man's Burden," directed by first-time director Jared Moshé and starring Barlow Jacobs, David Call ("Tiny Furniture," "Nobody Walks") and "Nashville" ingenue Clare Bowen. We caught the film at the Los Angeles Film Festival last year, and found the classic throwback Western tale of family drama, violence and intrigue to be "moody, violent, classic, yet modern," and hailed it's stunning 35 mm photography of the American Southwest.

Today brings the debut of the trailer for the western "Dead Man's Burden," directed by first-time director Jared Moshé and starring Barlow Jacobs, David Call ("Tiny Furniture," "Nobody Walks") and "Nashville" ingenue Clare Bowen. We caught the film at the Los Angeles Film Festival last year, and found the classic throwback western tale of family drama, violence and intrigue to be "moody, violent, classic, yet modern," and hailed its stunning 35 mm photography of the American Southwest. 

The trailer showcases all of those aspects and doesn't shy away from emphasizing the many gunshots that ring out during this family tragedy that is "a meditation on morality, survival, and the sometimes tenuous ties that bind families together," as we noted in our review. The gorgeous cinematography is also on display as well as the intense performances by the three leads. It's a slow burner of a western that ripples with tension and the trailer captures that aspect of the film well. 

Cinedigm is releasing "Dead Man's Burden" in New York on May 3rd before a national roll out, and you can also read our interview with director Moshé, Bowen, Call, and Jacobs from the LAFF here, where they discuss the incredible amount of historical detail that went into their preparation, shooting on location, and their favorite westerns.
