In 2014, Nicholas Rombes‘s novel of secret film history, The Absolution of Roberto Acestes Laing, was released by Two Dollar Radio. This year brings with it Rombes’s first film as writer and director, The Removals, also released through Two Dollar Radio’s cinematic arm. The film will have its premiere screening in Columbus, Ohio at the Wexner Center for the Arts on May 4th.
The trailer promises plenty of ominous dialogue, mysterious buildings, and shadowy disappearances–all promising ingredients for a paranoid thriller. There’s also what sounds like a nod to The Conversation in the dialogue, which is never unwelcome. The whole trailer can be seen at Vimeo, or below.
