There can never be too many films about music and how it is made. From each new genre and each new artist, there is always something new to offer in the mix of music and musicians. Distributed by Oscilloscope, shot on-location in Columbus, Ohio with local talent, written by Noah Dixon, and directed by Dixon and Ori Segev, “Poser” is an upcoming dramatic thriller about obsession and underground music. Following its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in June of last year, the first trailer for the film is now online, looking to promise intense lighting, soundscapes, and dramatic tension.
“Poser” has had quite a strong reception ahead of its official release, with a current 92% on Rotten Tomatoes from twenty-five reviews. Here’s the official synopsis:
Wallflower Lennon Gates (Sylvie Mix) yearns for access to the inner sanctum of the underground music scene in Columbus, Ohio. When she creates a podcast to interview the local artists she adores, Lennon discovers her own musical ambitions, develops a fast friendship with the striking, confident performer Bobbi Kitten, and in the process creates an identity not wholly her own. Soon, Lennon’s aspirations, with some constructive coaxing from Bobbi to find her voice, lead her down a path of dark obsession.
Starring Sylvie Mix, Bobbi Kitten, Abdul Seidu, Rachel Keefe, and Z-Wolf, “Poser” releases in theaters on June 3 in Columbus, Ohio before opening in New York and Los Angeles on June 17. Watch the trailer below.
