MIFF | 8° Film Festival Internazionale di Milano - 2:22 / Philip Guzman / Mick Rossi, Robert Miano, Aaron Gallagher, Jorge A. Jimenez, Val Kilmer 2:22 Mick Rossi, Robert Miano, Aaron Gallagher, Jorge A. Jimenez, Val Kilmer
The plan was simple; the job was not. When a tight crew of four thieves decide to take down a boutique hotel in the dead of winter things go horribly wrong. Unsuspecting hotel guests unwittingly play a part in this tangled web. Unusual lives and hard choices intertwine, twisting the scheme to the point of no return. Loyalty, love, friendship and honor are brought to a boil in this graphic crime thriller. Rooted in reality 2:22 draws its style from the classic French film “Rififi” with the story telling of “Dog Day Afternoon”.
Director of photography Philip Roy
Born in Nebraska in 1984, Philip Roy graduated in Film at Stephen F. Austin State University in 2006. He has already created a name for himself for having vision and talent compared to famous cinematographers 20 years his senior, and he is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after young cinematographers in North America. Philip won Best Cinematography at the Hollywood HD Festival in 2007 for his first film The Lawless, and also at the Boston Film Festival in 2009 for his follow-up film Desdemona: A Love Story. Both of them were produced by 2 Production, a film company co-founded by himself and his classmate and director Phillip Guzman. Philip is also an exceptional editor, which is one of the reasons he is such a competent and modern cinematographer.
