SHOOTING DATES: 25th April 2009 – 28th April 2009


The CAR is about Karl, a retro Cadillac driving man who claims he’s an accountant. On a dark quiet country road, Karl hears a noise coming from the boot of his car and discovers a man bound and gagged. In this dark strange night where seemingly anything can happen, the man is freaked out by Karl’s presence, believing Karl was the one who did this to him.

The script has been described as reminiscent of the work of the Cohen Brothers and Tarantino.


The film is an ambitious project that will be shot on the Red Camera at 4K and distributed to film festivals internationally. The film will also be shown to the filmmakers’ contacts within the Film, TV and Advertising industries in the UK, Germany and Los Angeles. The Director will be attending the Cannes Film Festival where he will show footage and previews of the film to selected Producers, Sales Agents and Distributors.



Sacha Boxell, writer and director of the project went to film-school at the NYFA’s Universal Studios campus in Los Angeles where he studied directing. He also holds an MA from Goldsmiths University of London in Screenwriting. Sacha’s professional work includes a commercial for Selfridges with Beattie McGuiness Bungay agency and filming videos of various celebrities including Mariah Carey and Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas amongst others. His short films have shown in international film festivals including San Francisco and Biarritz and he has two feature films in the pipeline.
