The release of this trailer feels like yet another reached echelon for me personally and for the film itself which is getting closer and closer to its Cannes screening. I knew that THE SHELTER would be a battle and a huge part of my life once I took it on – but hey, you don’t REALLY KNOW until you actually go through it and find out first had. To say this film has been a fight would be an understatement and I am very much aware that I’m not close to being done. A huge thank you to my friends, peers and family who have been supporting me throughout this journey. I couldn’t do it without you all. All right, internal monologue done!

The film is about: On a star filled night, widower and homeless man Thomas (Michael Paré) finds shelter for the night when he falls upon a vast two story house with the lights on and an inviting open front door. He strolls on in thinking he just caught a lucky break and for a while, it would appear as though he did. Inside, with nobody in sight, he finds all of the comforts that he used to have. After taking a bath, feasting wholeheartedly on some food and relishing the silliness on the tube, he gets some well-earned shut eye. All is well until a restless Thomas wakes up in a panic and finds a loaded revolver resting on his lap. Baffled, he picks up the weapon, checks the barrel and notes that it is fully loaded. A visceral sense of unease invades him immediately. Something is very wrong and he decides that it is time to leave. Alas he finds out swiftly that the premises won’t let him depart so quickly. The doors are all locked, and the windows puzzlingly cannot be opened or broken. Destiny has brought Thomas to this place. Will he survive the ordeal?
