American writer/director Joel Potrykus resides in Grand Rapids, Michigan. BUZZARD (SXSW, Locarno 2014) is the final installment in his ANIMAL TRILOGY, following the 2012 feature film APE (winner of Best Emerging Director, Locarno Film Festival) and the 2010 Super 8 short COYOTE. Along with his production crew, Joel teaches screenwriting at Grand Valley State University and writes for an annual film criticism publication.
Young outcast Sean has isolated himself in a trailer in the woods, setting out on alchemic pursuits, with his cat Kaspar as his sole companion. Filled with disdain for authority, he’s fled the daily grind and holed up in the wilderness, escaping a society that has no place for him. But when he turns from chemistry to black magic to crack nature’s secret, things go awry and he awakens something far more sinister and dangerous.
