COVADONGA. Dir. Sean Hartofilis. 2017, 70 min. Narrative. Lakeville, PA. World Premiere! Live Musical Performance + Q&A w/Hartofilis! Tickets HERE
Mourning his wife and their stolen life at a secluded lake house, Martin Ravin watches a tipsy young couple commandeer his canoe for a moonlight ride. Only the boy returns to shore, and Martin abducts him in order to find the missing girl. As Martin’s dark past starts haunting his present, in a decidedly musical fashion, we’re left to wonder if his crusade is exacting justice or simply transmitting a tragic history. Former professional lacrosse player, and current Astoria resident, Hartofilis, directs, stars in, and performs an original soundtrack of Irish folk-inspired ballads in his follow-up to 2014’s Beach Pillows (starring Geoffrey Arend and Vincent Kartheiser).
