SF IndieFest: OVERWHELM THE SKY
First show: February 10
Loosely adapted from Charles Brockden Brown’s 1799 novel “Edgar Huntly, or Memoirs of a Sleepwalker,” Overwhelm the Sky tells the story of Edgar “Eddie” Huntly, an east coast radio personality who moves to San Francisco to marry Thea, the sister of his best friend Neil, a successful entrepreneur. Shortly before Eddie’s arrival, Neil is found murdered in Golden Gate Park in what the police surmise was a simple mugging gone awry. As the sullen Eddie steps in as interim host of his old friend Dean’s late-night talk-radio show, he obsessively makes regular visits to the forested spot where Neil’s corpse was found. One such visit unleashes a chain of unpredictable events that sends Eddie snooping into the life of a sleepwalking drifter with a mysterious past.
Directed by Daniel Kremer. 100 min. USA. World Premiere.
