‘A Reckoning’ has been somewhat of a passion project. Its journey to the screen has been blessed and cursed in equal measure - but like most first films, I feel it brims with blind ambition, naive will, and an absolute hunger to tell the tale.
The tale itself explores a human being stripped bare, exposed in an unforgiving world and left with his most base primal will. What would we do if all we had was taken from us, our comforts, our treasures, our loves, our entire world – what would we become?
Myself, Leslie Simpson, Adam Krajczynski, and our wonderful crew have attempted to make something truly different, something that could speak to the yearning part of our hearts - which we all possess, but often remains hidden.
My hope is that in some small way ‘A Reckoning’ addresses a little of the many wondrous, beautiful and in turn, dark things that make us what we are. This film is a lament for the human race; a midnight chime that tolls for our species.
