FRIDAY, JULY 23
On a remote homestead amongst the Martian frontier, a refugee family from Earth clings to hope for a better life. But when strangers appear in the surrounding hills and attempt to run them off, nine-year-old Remmy (Brooklynn Prince, THE FLORIDA PROJECT) is faced with the desperate reality her mother (Sofia Boutella, THE MUMMY) and father (Jonny Lee Miller, TRAINSPOTTING) have tried so hard to keep from her.
An eye-catching sci-fi thriller with elements of the classic western, SETTLERS was filmed on location in the isolated desert area of Vioolsdift, situated in the Northern Cape in South Africa. London-based filmmaker Wyatt Rockefeller’s feature film debut, SETTLERS is among the NYU Production Lab’s slate of supported projects. Rockefeller received a dual MBA-MFA in film at NYU and has written, directed, and produced numerous short films, commercials, and documentaries.
