Formation Films “Solitary / A Memory of Lies” released internationally
Formation Films overcomes the odds with micro budget “SOLITARY”, released internationally as “A MEMORY OF LIES”. Made with an unknown cast and shot in the director’s house, the film is distributed internationally by MarVista Entertainment.
The mystery thriller tells the story of an agoraphobic woman (Amber Jaeger) who’s trapped inside her own house and thinks her husband (Kieron Elliott) is conspiring with her psychiatrist (Andrew Qamar) to drive her insane. The film was directed by Greg Derochie and written by Derochie and Charles Scalfani. Released in the US in late 2010 through Osiris Entertainment, the film was picked up for international distribution by MarVista Entertainment, despite it’s micro-budget and unknown cast.
“I suppose we’ve beat the odds with Solitary, since most indie features never achieve wide distribution. We’re thrilled to be working with MarVista Entertainment to bring the film to international audiences,” said writer/director Greg Derochie.
The film received wide praise during it’s festival run in 2010, including awards from Cinequest and Big Bear film festivals.
“A brilliant work by director Greg Derochie… reminiscent of early Alfred Hitchcock.” Richard Boyle - San Bernardino Sun
“The film is an ingenious cheat on its limitations, focusing on internal horror and paying off with a white-knuckle third act twist that is just as frightening as anything a big-budget shocker could muster.” Chris Alexander - Fangoria Magazine
MarVista has sold the film in Spain, Australia, France, Latin America, Canada, Argentina, Turkey, Cyprus, Slovakia, and Vietnam. In North America, the film is currently available on Netflix, iTunes, and Amazon.
