VIOLENT (2014) is now Available for distribution in Canada!
A catastrophic event sparks a young Norwegian woman’s memories of the five people who loved her most, in the visually stunning feature debut of West Coast musician and filmmaker Andrew Huculiak.
Amazing Factory Productions Inc., based in Vancouver, BC partnered with We Are the City, a renowned Vancouver band to create ‘Violent’. The plan was set in motion to write, produce and release a feature film as a sister piece to the band’s album also titled “Violent”. The film’s score utilizes melodic motifs from the album’s tracks and the story took shape as a poignant interpretation of the album themes.
Filmed entirely by a Canadian crew in Bergen, Norway, “Violent” tells the story of Dagny (Dagny Johnsen) during a catastrophic event, which sparks the young Norwegian woman’s memories of the five people who loved her most. This is the visually stunning feature debut of West Coast musician and filmmaker Andrew Huculiak.
“Violent” director Andrew Huculiak is best known as the drummer of the popular Vancouver rock band We Are The City, and a member of Amazing Factory Productions. “Violent” has won Best Canadian Film and Best BC Film at the Vancouver International Film Festival, 8 Leo Awards including ‘Best Picture’, and was an official selection at several high profile film festivals, including Karlovy Vary, San Sebastían, and Los Cabos.
