Ahead of the film’s premiere at SXSW, we’ve learned today via Deadline that Jaco Bouwer‘s South African horror movie Gaia has already been acquired for release by Decal.
Decal, which Deadline notes is “the newly formed home entertainment distributor from Neon and Bleecker Street,” is planning to release Gaia in theaters this summer.
“The plot follows a park ranger on a surveillance mission in a primordial forest who encounters two survivalists living a post-apocalyptic lifestyle. The boy and his philosophical father seem to have their own religion and a mysterious relationship to nature.”
The film stars Monique Rockman, Carel Nel, Alex van Dyk, and Anthony Oseyemi.
Tertius Kapp wrote the script. Watch the teaser below.
