An official selection of the Cannes Film Festival 2016, writer/director Michael O’Shea’s debut feature The Transfiguration follows troubled teen Milo who hides behind his fascination with vampire lore.

A chilling portrait of violence, The Transfiguration is an atmospheric thriller set against the grit of New York City.
