Having premiered at last year’s Fantasia International Film Festival and played other notable fests, Jordan Graham’s eerie feature is now set for commercial release.
SATOR, which also screened at the Telluride Horror Show and the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, has been picked up by 1091 Pictures, which will open it in North America on a date to be determined. Graham was the director, writer, producer, cinematographer, editor and composer of SATOR; the synopsis: “The film follows as a demon known as Sator observes an intimate family secluded in the woods. Graham’s own grandmother, June Peterson, now passed, recounts her real personal history with the mysterious entity on screen, alongside newcomers Michael Daniel, Aurora Lowe, Gabriel Nicholson and Rachel Johnson.”
“SATOR is quite personal to me,” Graham says. “It delves into my family’s dark history with mental illness surrounding a supernatural entity, and uses home video footage to create an interwoven piece between documentary and fiction. After working on this project for seven years, I am so grateful that 1091 has picked up the film, allowing it to finally find an audience.” Watch SATOR’s Fantasia trailer below.
