British neo noir thriller - with a feminist twist - a hitman becomes the target in a game he didn't know he was playing.
Adapted from a graphic novel by Scottish artist, David Taylor, To A Cinder is about a man with a saviour complex, who is anything but, and a caution for us all to be aware that what we beleive we are witnessing may not be everything it seems to be.
There are always at least two sides to every story

Pulling in positive references and reviews from the outset, "...very Shrader-esque." (Sales Agent) "starts out a bit like Hitchcock's REAR WINDOW... evolves into the realm of SHALLOW GRAVE and WILD THINGS" (Film and TV Now). To A Cinder embarked on its UK Festival Campaign at the start of 2023 - was official selection at London Independent Film Festival in April 2023, winning the Debut Film Award - and nominated for Best Feature at Kingston International Film Festival.
