Gravitas Ventures acquired the North American rights to Alex Noyer’s slasher photo Sound of violence, which is scheduled to premiere at this year’s SXSW Film Festival in March. Gravitas will release the film in theaters and on demand on May 21.

Written and directed by Noyer, Noise of violence stars Jasmin Savoy Brown (the next Yell the comeback, Leftovers), Lili Simmons (Ray Donovan, Banshee, Bone Tomahawk), James Jagger (Vinyl, the outpost) and Tessa Munro (TO CRUSH).

The story follows Alexis, who regained her hearing after witnessing the brutal murder of her family when she was ten. The visceral experience awakened in her her synaesthetic abilities and set her on an orphan path of self-discovery through the healing tones of brutal violence.

She pursues a career of teaching and experimenting to find new sounds. She is supported by her roommate Marie who ignores the dark secrets of Alexis’ unique music and the role she unknowingly plays. Faced with the likelihood of losing her hearing again, Alexis escalates her pursuit of her masterpiece through gruesome sound experiences and devastating designs.

“I was fortunate to be surrounded by people who believed in my idea of ​​an artist instead of a killer,” Noyer said. “From our amazing lead role Jasmin Savoy Brown, to my production partner Hannu Aukia, to our cast and crew, this film has come about through faith in that vision. Gravitas has shown us that same confidence. I am delighted for them to bring it to the North American public so soon after our world premiere at SXSW.

Noise of violence marks Noyer’s first feature film as a director. The film is inspired by his short film Driver. Walnut has also produced documentaries such as A Conversation with Julian Schnabel, New York Influence City and 808, who debuted at SXSW in 2015.

The film was produced by Noyer and Hannu Aukia. Mike Macari (The ring trilogy) serves as executive producer.

Tony Piantedosi, vice president of acquisitions at Gravitas Ventures, negotiated the deal with VMI Worldwide’s sales president, JD Beaufils, on behalf of the filmmakers.
