53 minutes/US/English / Feature Narrative/Crime Drama
Director: Julio Alvarez*

MIAMI PREMIERE / Filmed in Miami
ABOUT THE FILM:      THE GUN is the story of a sinister pistol, forged in blood and imbued with a damned soul. The film is based on a graphic novel of the same name and tells the tale of one unlucky soul who just happens to come into possession of this infernal instrument of doom.
The screenplay was shot by cinematographer and Chicago-transplant Anthony Dones over several weeks in Coral Gables and South Miami, Florida on the blood, sweat, and effort of a dedicated cast and crew with absolutely no budget. The film uses genre and period specific elements to heighten the look and feel of the piece. A true independent film and labor of love, THE GUN is representative of the talent and grit of South Florida’s growing independent film community.  Source: filmmaker
ABOUT THE DIRECTOR:     Global wayfarer and student of the elements of ‘the story’, Julio Alvarez, is dedicated to revealing the detail and hyperrealism of the moment. His photographic and filmic artistry reflects his curiosity for–and ability to capture–the immediacy, expression, limitless beauty, entertainment and innate importance of the narrative, whether that story is a movie or in a still photograph. He received training in the Theater Arts as a student of the Center for Expressive Arts under Lou Alexiou and the Performing and Visual Arts Center (a precursor to the New World School of the Arts). Julio’s rolling stone tendencies have led him to live and work all over the U.S., Europe and Central Asia. He has worked as a sound recording engineer, producer and mixer for over two decades. As a filmmaker, he has worked on corporate industrials, independent narrative films, promotional films and music videos in the capacity of director, shooter, location sound mixer, sound designer and editor. Julio’s curiosity for the nuanced details of a good story and his expertise in the technical components of picture and sound allow him to naturally draw out the each performer’s uniqueness with profound grace, imbuing each film with a distinctive and timeless story of its own.  Source: filmmaker
