“The Transfiguration” is written and directed by Michael O’Shea and stars Eric Ruffin and Chloe Levine. It was an Official Selection at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and in March at the SXSW Film Festival 2017 in Austin. Writer/director Michael O’Shea’s debut feature, “The Transfiguration,” follows troubled teen Milo (Ruffin) who hides behind his fascination with vampire lore. When he meets the equally alienated Sophie (Levine), the two individuals form a bond that begins to challenge Milo’s dark obsession, blurring his fantasy into reality. A chilling portrait of violence, “The Transfiguration” is an atmospheric thriller set against the grit of New York City.
“The Transfiguration” is now showing as of Friday, April 7th at the Angelika Film Center in New York, and in Los Angeles, it will open on Friday, April 21st at The Nuart Theatre. A national release will follow, including Austin later this month.
