“A Desert” marks the first production from Yellow Veil Pictures in partnership with Capes & Fog, a production company founded by Erkman.

The film follows a past-his-prime photographer on a road trip across the American Southwest hoping to recapture the magic and success of his previous work. Instead, he finds himself thrust into the dark and chaotic underbelly of America and unwittingly drags his wife and a shady private detective down into the nightmare world with him.

“Moving into the production space has always been a goal of ours at Yellow Veil Pictures,” said Hugues Barbier, co-founder of Yellow Veil Pictures. “‘A Desert’ is bold, disturbing, and beautiful, encapsulating the type of cinema we love to defend, and we can’t wait to present it to the world. Having the chance to launch our productions with not only one of our favorite artists, but also a dear friend exemplifies the way we like to collaborate.”

Erkman added: “Without the support and collaboration of Yellow Veil Pictures, and their shared commitment to the ideas behind the film, “A Desert” would not have been possible.”

Barbier, Justin Timms and Joe Yanick produced for Yellow Veil Pictures and Erkman produced for Capes & Fog.
