Monument Releasing has posted up a trailer for Mark Webber‘s latest film, Flesh and Blood, which revolves around a man, played by Webber, attempting to get his life back on track after serving time in prison. Similar to Webber’s previous directorial efforts, this one brings in elements from his real life, with the casting of his mother who was the Green Party’s Vice Presidential candidate in the 2012 election.
Monument will be releasing Flesh and Blood in theaters in LA October 27th and in New York November 11th.
Based on a real family, FLESH AND BLOOD blurs the line between narrative and documentary, with characters played by their real life counterparts. Writer and director Mark Webber (GREEN ROOM, THE END OF LOVE) stars as a man who has just been released from prison and returns home to his impoverished neighborhood in Philadelphia. Mark attempts to rebuild his life and reintegrate into the community, but he struggles with staying sober, forging a bond with his half-brother Guillermo, and mending a strained relationship with his mother, who is played by Cheri Honkala, Webber’s real life mother and the Green Party’s nominee for Vice President in the 2012 U.S. election. Hoping to move beyond the mistakes of his past, Mark seeks out his estranged, real-life father, who he meets for the first time in over 30 years. Will Mark’s life remain defined by his own flesh and blood?
