If There’s a Hell Below

Just screened at the Slamdance Film Festival, Williams’s film is a tense thriller that follows a journalist and an informant as they seek to exchange information in the wide-open prairies of Eastern Washington. Paranoia and panoramic beauty collide as heightened states of awareness suggest they are not alone at all. In an age when sharing classified information can both liberate the masses while imprisoning the whistle blower, this unique film sets audiences directly in the middle of sacrifice and fear. “[If There Is a Hell Below] makes evocative use of all that vast emptiness, with allusions to existential elements in the style of North By Northwest and No Country For Old Men.”—The Hollywood Reporter.
