LIVE CARGO Opens in Limited Release March 31



Gunpowder & Sky Distribution has announced the March 31st theatrical release of Logan Sandler's Live Cargo. Live Cargo premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival to glowing reviews and went on to screen around the world, including AFI Fest, Warsaw Film Festival, Sao Paulo International Film Festival, Torino Film Festival, Bahamas International Film Festival and more. Live Cargo will open March 31 in New York at Cinema Village and in Los Angeles at Arena Cinelounge Hollywood.

Newcomer Sam Dillon delivers a breakout performance as Myron, a mysterious, homeless youth who is desperate to belong.  He stars alongside Independent Spirit Award nominee Lakeith Stanfield (Short Term 12, Get Out, "Atlanta"), Robert Altman Spirit Award recipient Dree Hemingway (Starlet), Robert Wisdom ("The Wire") and Leonard Earl Howze ("Kevin Can Wait").





Based on writer-director Logan Sandler's own experience growing up in and around the Bahamas, Live Cargo is a powerful meditation on love, loss and healing in a post-colonial world. Shot entirely in black and white, the film upends the "tropical paradise" archetype through its sharp, neorealist focus on the day-to-day of the island community. Live Cargo marks Sandler's feature directorial debut and is co-written and produced by Thymaya Payne, director and producer of the award-winning documentary Stolen Seas.

Trainwreck

No contemporary filmmaker has chronicled the messy human experience with the eye and ear of a comedic cultural anthropologist like JUDD APATOW. Hits as varied as those he’s directed, like Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and those he’s produced, like Superbad and Bridesmaids, are all unified by their honest, unflinching, comic look at how complicated it is to grow up in the modern world. Apatow has also built a history of helping break distinctive new comedy voices into the mainstream, from Seth Rogen to Lena Dunham, among many others. Now, in his fifth feature film as a director, Apatow again brings a portrait of an unforgettable character, and a portrayal by a breakout new comedy star, together in a film written by and starring AMY SCHUMER (TV’s Inside Amy Schumer) as a woman who lives her life without apologies, even when maybe she should apologize.
