“The Man in the Maze” now in post-production, has obtained distribution in the U.S. through R-Squared Films and in India the film will be distributed by Mowgli Productions. Limited theatrical release dates are scheduled for Fall 2010 by R-Squared Films and December 2010 by Mowgli Productions.
Patel, whose production company is Applied Art Productions, began post production in April. He is producer, director and story writer for the film. He was born and raised in India and says he is passionate about photography and film making.
“The Man in the Maze” centers around four college students on a field trip to learn more about the American Indian Trail of Tears. While traipsing through the woods, however, they stumble upon an Indian burial mound that marks the burial site of a Native American family that died on the trail. The mound was cursed by a distraught family member, and whoever disturbs it unleashes trouble and winds up lost in a maze, terrorized by an unknown force.
“It’s pretty smart,” according to Mr. Patel, “I think a lot of viewers are going to get lost the first time through, and they’ll have to watch it again to pick out all the details. It’s delivered in such a way that it takes you a while to figure it out.”
