“A masterpiece of organic imagery” – Rachel Gibson Shepherd, Truth on Cinema.

Working in an insular farming community in Appalachia, Sal Damon, a modern-day Thoreau, seeks solace from a past relationship. After a sudden death in the community and the discovery of a feral child living on the lam, Sal must reconcile his place in a world that lives outside of the law.

“A bittersweet tale occupying the margins of the in-between” – Film Pulse

“An immense film whose ideas and images resonate long after it’s been watched” – Vérité Film Magazine

A multi-award winning film, Some Beasts has earned its place in acclaimed independent cinema with wins at:

  • Sarasota Film Festival for the Independent Visions Award for Outstanding Performance
  • Indie Memphis Film Festival for the Ron Tibbett Excellence in Filmmaking Award
  • Dallas International Film Festival for Special Jury Prize for Cinematography and Narrative Feature
  • Virginia Film Festival for Programmer’s Choice Award for Narrative Feature

The film is built around the emotional journey of Sal (Frank Mosley, in one of his best performances to date), the caretaker of several farms in a small Appalachian community. Like his group of friends whom he visits regularly, Sal is a back-to-the-land type, and has dreams of building a home and raising a family on the piece of land where he lives.

Hammer on Nail wrote “Regional films with this sort of depth and artistry are a welcome addition to the canon of American Independent Cinema.”

The dynamic cast includes Frank Mosley (Upstream Color), Lindsay Burdge (Thirst Street), and Heather Kafka (Texas Chainsaw Massacre).
