An ambivalent reporter will get a big break if his interview with the Devil goes as planned, in this narrative short film from writer/director Ian Ebright (From the Sky). THE DEVIL NEEDS A FIX is a dark comedy/fantasy/drama exploring disconnectedness, longing, and fear in modern society.
THE DEVIL NEEDS A FIX stars Stefan Hajek (Automata), Steven Soro (From the Sky), and Rosalie Miller (Z Nation), and is produced by Jess Grant (From the Sky), Sarah MacAaron (Manic Pixie Dream Wife), and Ian Ebright.
The film features a soundtrack by Helsinki-based folk/pop/electronic band Husky Rescue (SXSW, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits), including new music composed for the film by founding member and lead musician Marko Nyberg.
