Free Screening: The Water Man

Please note…

This screening has reached its registration capacity.

You’re invited to watch The Water Man in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media. A special pre-recorded conversation with director/producer/actor David Oyelowo and writer/executive producer Emma Needell, moderated by Josh Welsh (President, Film Independent), is included as part of this screening experience.

Gunner (Lonnie Chavis) sets out on a quest to save his ill mother (Rosario Dawson) by searching for a mythic figure who possesses the secret to immortality, the Water Man. After enlisting the help of a mysterious local girl, Jo (Amiah Miller), they journey together into the remote Wild Horse forest – but the deeper they venture, the stranger and more dangerous the forest becomes. Their only hope for rescue is Gunner’s father (David Oyelowo), who will stop at nothing to find them and in the process will discover who his son really is.

From RLJE Films, The Water Man will be in select theaters May 7.
