Speed Cinema Presents: "Men Go To Battle" says
Directed by Zachary Treitz
Introduced by Zachary Treitz

Set and shot in Kentucky by a primarily local cast and crew, director Zachary Treitz went on to win the coveted directing prize at the Tribeca Film Festival upon the film’s premiere. Set amid the backdrop of the Civil War in Kentucky in 1861, "Men Go to Battle" is a tale of fraternal dysfunction. With Christmas approaching, two brothers, Henry (Tim Morton) and Francis (David Maloney), are concerned about braving the winter on their rugged rural farm.

With cabin fever setting in, tensions flare as Francis’ once-innocent teasing of Henry turns increasingly aggressive and cruel. After a humiliating time out on the town, Henry breaks and disappears without notice, leaving Francis to tend the land himself. Months later, after learning that his brother has joined the Union Army, Francis’ relationship with his brother is further complicated as the war becomes personal. 2015, U.S., DCP, 98 minutes.
