A Snake Marked

A Film by Juan Riedinger

Synopsis

After many years, a convict who spends his days sketching charcoal art in his prison cell, receives a surprise visit from his estranged father. This encounter forces him to contemplate his own existence and place in the world. As he begins to remember the past, his memories cause him to lose grasp, blurring the lines of his present reality.

    Juan makes his living as a professional actor (Narcos, Good Behavior, Claws, The Romeo Section) but has a long list of acclaimed directing credits under his belt. His first film ‘Shark Out of Water’ was nominated for four Leo Awards, including Best Picture and Best Direction. He is also the only two-time recipient of the NSI’s A&E Short Filmmaker’s Award for his films ‘Shark Out of Water’ and ‘Birth Day’. Juan’s more recent film ‘Float’ was produced through BravoFACT and won Juan the coveted prize of “Most Promising Director of a Canadian Short” at the Vancouver International Film Festival. After focusing predominantly on his acting career for many years, Juan returned to the other side of the camera to direct, edit and co-write ‘A Snake Marked’.
