Described by its director as “Mad Max bitch slapping Terrence Malick,” Dust of War/ rampages through a post-apocalyptic American Frontier as a lone soldier fends off a brutal warmonger to rescue a girl fated to be the savior of humanity. Our hero joins forces with a cynical war veteran and a slimy Peter Lorre-type to bring the girl to safety, encountering mysterious invaders, unmarked minefields, and traveling showmen along the way.
Born and raised in Madagascar, Kightlinger studied politics and French at Augustana College before attending film school at Boston University. His first grand-scale production is the award-winning short You Don’t Know Bertha Constantine.
