Windblown is Now Available for Streaming
After the unexpected death of her brother, Beth Reeves seeks solace in her family’s New England cottage. What seems at first like a quiet retreat quickly proves deceptive and dangerous. Windblown challenges the classic adage, “find what you love and let it kill you.”
Dark Passage Films is proud to present Windblown, a short psychological thriller film by Katie Vincent and Usher Morgan. The film was shot in Charlestown Beach, RI over the course of several days in 2018. It stars Katie Vincent, who also wrote, co-directed, and produced the film alongside Usher Morgan (Pickings, Prego), as well as Jacob A. Ware (Boardwalk Empire, Law & Order: SVU) and Susan Gallagher (Cobra Kai, Safe Harbor).
The film was produced by Dark Passage Films and, over the course of the last two years, amassed an impressive number of “Best Short” awards and nominations, winning top prize at Top Shorts and receiving the Best Short Award at the Los Angeles Film Awards. Vincent received several accolades for her performance as Beth, with Indie Shorts Mag writing, “Katie Vincent as the lead actress is heartbreaking... Her performance leaves the viewer feeling rather raw.” Chris Olson with the UK Film Review wrote, “Katie Vincent is striking in the lead role; her delivery of the character’s numerous mental and emotional states is full of nuance and intelligently crafted.” Windblown is now available for streaming online: Direct YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3551oZfAjZs Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9AT5VfFKSK4 Press page: www.darkpassagefilms.com/windblownpress Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8865428 The filmmakers, cast, and crew are available for interviews upon request.
