Vandon Gibbs’s Complex Dramatic Thriller ‘Solace’ Available on ITunes Next Week


It’s hard to reduce Atlanta-based filmmaker Vandon Gibbs dramatic thriller Solace to a

simple description. Suffice to say that it is, without question, quite original, with a

plot that goes off in totally unexpected directions.

Written and directed by Gibbs, using three seemingly undated

plotlines involving a black hustler, an adulterous politician and his suspicious

wife, a nervous wreck of a lawyer, a hired hit man and his intended victim tied

to a chair pleading for her life while trying to figure out why she’s there in

the first place, Gibbs weaves a complex and corrupt world of treachery,

lies and unsettling dread.

The film won the Jury Award for Best Drama at Cinequest

in San Jose California, and was also screened at the Atlanta Film Festival, the New Orleans Film Festival, the Black

Harvest Film Festival in Chicago, the

Peachtree International Film Festival and the Bronze Lens Film Festival in Atlanta.

Now, starting on Tuesday

Dec 10th, the film will be available for download or to buy through on

iTunes (HERE). 

It’s definitely worth

checking out.

Here’s the trailer:
