After Venice Brimstone will be screened in the Special Presentations section of the Toronto International Film Festival, taking place September 8 - 18.

Synopsis Brimstone:
A triumphant epic of survival set in the searing wilds of the Badlands, the menacing inferno of the old American West. A tale of powerful womanhood and resistance against the unforgiving cruelty of a hell on earth.
Our heroine is Liz, carved from the beautiful wilderness, full of heart and grit, accused of a crime she didn't commit, hunted by a vengeful Preacher - a diabolical zealot and her twisted nemesis.
But Liz is a genuine survivor; she's no victim - a woman of fearsome strength who responds with astonishing bravery to claim the better life she and her daughter deserve.
Fear not. Retribution is coming.
