Ashley Douglas thinks everything should fall into place when he’s released after three years in prison. When that doesn’t happen, he restarts his life with next to nothing: no friends, no lovers, no connections. All he has is a bedroom in his mom’s house, a box of treasures buried in his backyard, and a deeply ingrained need to be with Linda — his one, true love — who has moved on without him. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
Ashley sees an opportunity in the form of Jeremy, an eccentric loner. They start a two-man business of dumping unwanted refrigerators for cash, which Ashley hopes will get Linda back and Jeremy hopes will help his ailing grandfather. As their partnership takes hold, a friendship flourishes — though their fates are very much still up in the air.
With HUNTER GATHERER, filmmaker Josh Locy (making his feature-length debut) crafts a bittersweet, darkly comic tale of seeking out one’s destiny — but discovering an unexpected fate along the way. Peppered with elements of the surreal and anchored by a brazen, SXSW award winning central performance by Andre Royo (“The Wire,” “Empire”) as Ashley and a breakthrough turn from newcomer George Sample III as Jeremy, HUNTER GATHERER defies expectation and will leave audiences curious long after they leave the theater.
