THE BATTERY is a US indie film written and directed by Jeremy Gardner, starring Gardner and Adam Cronheim.
It tells the story of two former baseball players, Ben (Jeremy Gardner) and Mickey (Adam Cronheim), who cut an aimless path across a desolate New England. They stick to the back roads and forests to steer clear of the shambling corpses that patrol the once bustling cities and towns. In order to survive, they must overcome the stark differences in each other’s personalities – Ben embraces an increasingly feral, lawless, and nomadic lifestyle – while Mickey is unable to accept the harsh realities of the new world. Mickey refuses to engage in Ben’s violent games and longs for the creature comforts he once took for granted. A bed, a girl, and a safe place to live.
When the men intercept a radio transmission from a seemingly thriving, protected community, Mickey will stop at nothing to find it, even though it is made perfectly clear that he is not welcome.
The film has played at five international film festivals so far, with more selections to come, and has already pocketed 6 awards. Screen Division is helping the producer O. hannah Films with the festival bookings.
