"7 SPLINTERS IN TIME garnered a ton of attention from its premiere at Cinequest earlier this year and we were determined to bring it to our audience,” says Repp. “What made it stand out to me is that director Gabriel Judet-Weinshel combines a unique artistic style with a strong narrative. He finds a nice balance between world creating, character development and dynamic visuals that provides one of my favorite cinematic experiences of the year."
In a dazzling narrative that incorporates the textural richness and depth of art-house cinema, the best elements of pulp science fiction, and the scope of a Hollywood action-thriller, 7 SPLINTERS IN TIME follows in the footsteps of Darren Aronofsky’s 'Pi,' Julian Schnabel’s 'The Diving Bell and the Butterfly,' with a bit of John Woo’s deliciously entertaining 'Face-Off' thrown in for good measure.
7 SPLINTERS IN TIME is award-winning director Gabriel Judet-Weinshel’s feature debut. Judet-Weinshel’s short films, featurettes, music videos, and commercial work have screened throughout the world at over 100 festivals and on MTV, The Sundance Channel, and CMT. Of his work, the Seattle Weekly writes, ‘His dazzling, archetypal images . . . have a stunning authority that actually pull forth a mythic power.’
“This movie knows absolutely what it's doing … writer/director Gabriel Judet-Weinshel has crafted a thriller with the DNA of several great artists before him ... 7 SPLINTERS IN TIME will unnerve you with a power of its own. It’s as if David Lynch and Terry Gilliam had a love child.” —Derek McCaw, Fanboy Planet
“The look of this film is exceptional … an auspicious venture into the world of SF, and an impressive first feature. The strange cityscapes, with their buildings that look like exploded hypercubes, the lighting and set-ups, the dramatic shots are all impressive ..." —Mark Cole, Rivets on the Poster
“ …vividly nightmarish… Greg Bennick is excellent as the hyperkinetic mystery figure Luka. Lynn Cohen is a howl as the salty curmudgeon Babs… plenty of eye candy and sometimes there’s the feeling of Fellini on Dexedrine.” —Scott Strickland, The Movie Gourmet
“I saw touches of ERASERHEAD, TWELVE MONKEYS, MAD MAX, CITY OF LOST CHILDREN… " —Robert Emmett, KFJC's "Thoughtline"
“7 SPLINTERS IN TIME succeeds in providing an unparalleled take on the ‘sci-fi-thriller’ as it packs in plenty of suspenseful twists, an intriguing romantic narrative, and consistently ravishing visuals while channeling through intricate themes of youth, love, and identity.” —Peter Koros, CineQuest Film Festival
