“‘Vulcanizadora’ is a mind bending ride of comedy, suspense and utter devastation, and we are thrilled to be producing the bold and daring fifth feature of the great Joel Potrykus,” said Dweck founder Hannah Dweck. “This is the exact type of boundary pushing, genre bending film we love to help bring to the screen. We can’t wait to watch this with an audience.”
Matt Grady, founder of independent film production and distribution company Factory 25, will produce “Vulcanizadora” alongside Ashley Potrykus and Dan Berger.
“I was blown away by the punk vision of Joel’s first film and realized immediately that Factory 25 had to release it,” said Grady. “I have been a huge fan of his movies ever since and am so excited to be back working with this mad genius on Vulcanizadora.”
Dweck was founded by Hannah Dweck in 2018 aside filmmaker and producer Theodore Schaefer. The New York-based production company has previously produced projects including Dustin Guy Defa’s “The Adults” and Jane Schoenbrun’s “We’re All Going to the World’s Fair.”
“I’m incredibly stoked to be working with a company that understands what I’m up to and gives the freedom to create a film that will shake up audiences in the most unpleasant way,” added Potrykus.
