On September 13, the film released theatrically in France to critical acclaim and this September 23, it will be participating in Art House Convergence’s Art House Theater Day, playing in select theaters across the country. 

Written by, directed by, and starring first-time feature director Jim Cummings, "THUNDER ROAD" is based on the 2016 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Grand Jury Prize winning film of the same name

"THUNDER ROAD" centers on Jim Arnaud, a Texan police officer, as he struggles to raise his daughter as a love letter to his late mom. 

It is a tragicomic portrait of a failing figure of authority in America.

Beyond its success at SXSW, "THUNDER ROAD" has been a festival favorite both internationally and domestically. 

The film was in the top five best reviewed films at Cannes this year where it premiered internationally. 

Most recently it was awarded the Grand Prix at Deauville American Film Festival in France. 

"THUNDER ROAD" has also received the New Directors Grand Jury Award at Nashville Film Festival, the New American Cinema Grand Jury Award at Seattle International Film Festival, the Narrative Feature Jury Prize at the Indie Street Film Festival and the Best Feature Award at the Sidewalk Film Festival.

"THUNDER ROAD" stars Cummings, Kendal Farr, Nican Robinson, Jocelyn DeBoer, and Macon Blair. The film is produced by Natalie Metzger, Zack Parker, and Benjamin Wiessner. It is executive produced by Matt Miller of Vanishing Angle.

Writer/director/producer/actor Jim Cummings was selected for Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film in 2012. 

Cummings has also written and directed the Topic original series "STILL LIFE," episodes of which have been Vimeo Staff-Picks and the Fullscreen original series "THE MINUTES COLLECTION," recently featured by FilmStruck and select episodes screened at Sundance and SXSW. 

Vanishing Angle is an independent studio based in Los Angeles. Previously, VA distributed the successful, 35mm only, theatrical release of Dennis Hauck’s "TOO LATE" starring Academy Award nominee John Hawkes. 

Vanishing Angle will also be releasing Patrick Wang’s "A BREAD FACTORY PART 1" and "A BREAD FACTORY PART 2" on October 26 and Wang’s previous film "THE GRIEF OF OTHERS" on November 2, in New York and Los Angeles. 

"THE GRIEF OF OTHERS" was produced by Cummings, Miller, and Wiessner. 

This is a first-time collaboration between Vanishing Angle and the newly formed Texas-based production company The 10 East Pictures, founded by producer Zack Parker to facilitate the next generation of independent filmmakers.
