The Road to Nod

THE ROAD TO NOD is a narcotic and brooding tale of wrong decisions and their inevitable and desultory consequences. The film is at its roots an old testament tragedy. Shot in stark high contrast black and white the film bears resemblance to classic film noirs and the genre of the Road Movie. The otherworldy Irish landscape, long tracking shots and the hallucinogenic blues soundtrack lend the film a peculiar rhythm and atmosphere.

Synopsis: After serving a nine year prison sentence, PARRISH, a Skid Row criminal, attempts to rekindle ties with his old partners. Upon his return he's immediately faced with a harsh new reality: The power on the Skids has shifted and Parrish finds himself on the run and embarks on a trans-European escape from his pursuers. The film blends the archetypes of traditional film noir and the road movie with elements of "Kammerspiel" theatre...with a raw and hallucinogenic delta blues soundtrack. The film features Delaney Davidson, Chris Hughes, Rev. Beat-Man, Franz Dobler, Jeroen Visser, Alain Croubalian, Mischa De Haring, Manfred Peckl, Miron Zownir and Dominique Noiret.
