A MOTHER’S FURY KNOWS NO BOUNDS. DARK PASSAGE FILMS RELEASES NEW TRAILER FOR PICKINGS – HIGHLY STYLIZED, NEO-NOIR CRIME FILM IN THEATERS THIS SPRING

Spaghetti Western and neo-noir battle it out over a neighborhood bar in this action-packed movie trailer. One southern woman will stand up to the mob to save her property and keep her family safe.

NEW YORK CITY, NY – December 21, 2017 – Filmmaker Usher Morgan announces the release of a thrilling new trailer for its upcoming indie crime movie, Pickings.

This neo-noir meets Spaghetti Western drama takes viewers on a thrilling ride into the story of Jo Lee Haywood – a single mother and neighborhood bar owner who spent years trying to escape her violent past. But when a local mobster and his gang of thugs come knocking on her door, Jo is forced to embrace her inner demons and confront her deadly history in order to protect her family and property. Still waters run deep in this stylistic crime saga.

The film’s ensemble cast includes Elyse Price, Joel Bernard, Katie Vincent (who also served as the film’s associate producer and music supervisor), Joe Trombino, Emil Ferzola, Yaron Urbas, Michael Gentile, Christopher Liam Gentry, and Samantha Zaino, among others.

Principle photography began in March of 2016 under a shooting budget of $350,000. The film was shot in Yonkers, New York City, Southampton Village, and Staten Island over the course of 35 days. After receiving 10 nominations at the Tampa Bay Underground Film Festival in December, Pickings went on to win “Best Feature Director” (Usher Morgan), “Best Cinematography” (Louis Obioha), and “Best Feature Actress” (Elyse Price).

“This is a family story, a gangster flick and a southern revenge film all rolled into one,” said Morgan. “We’re mixing some really cool comic book elements with Spaghetti Western elements to produce some interesting results. I can’t wait for folks to see it!”

Pickings is scheduled to be released to select theaters via Dark Passage Films and Digital Magic Entertainment on March 2nd, 2018. For additional information on the film’s theatrical release, visit our website, www.PickingsFilm.com, or follow the film on https://www.facebook.com/PickingsFilm/
