The search for the empress’s daughter reunites two long lost brothers who grew up on opposite sides of a war and now must choose between family bonds and political alliances.
Written and directed by Arturo Lizardi, TRAIL OF ASHES was produced by Samari Vega and Lizardi. TRAIL OF ASHES stars Lizardi, Hector Escudero, Cecilia Arguelles, and Carlos Miranda.
Lizardi said “When we began our search to find a home for TRAIL OF ASHES, Gravitas Ventures immediately stood out. They prioritized good storytelling above everything else. You can imagine how overjoyed we were when, after our first meeting with Nick Royak (Acquisitions manager for Gravitas Ventures), our goals and vision for the film matched perfectly. We are thrilled to make Gravitas Ventures the home of our first feature film.”
“I was excited to see indie filmmakers delve into the realm of medieval fantasy, it’s no small feat. Arturo and his team explore a world born out of their pure imaginations and anchor it with a boiling mystery,” said Gravitas Ventures Senior Acquisitions Manager Nick Royak.
The deal was negotiated by Nick Royak on behalf of Gravitas Ventures and Tiffany Boyle on behalf of the filmmakers.
The film will be available to rent and own on North American digital HD internet, cable and satellite platforms through Gravitas Ventures on December 1, 2020.
