February 5th, 2013 – D FILMS is proud to announce MAD SHIP will open theatrically in Toronto on March 29th, 2013, and in Montreal on April 5th, with further expansion nationwide in the following weeks.  The announcement was made today by D Films’ Vice-President of Marketing and Development, Michael Robson.

Inspired by true events, MAD SHIP is the story of Tomas Sorensen, a man of great passion, optimism and ideals. A Norwegian immigrant to Western Canada in the 1920’s, he dreams of establishing a family wheat dynasty.  But the perfect storm of prairie drought and the economic crash of 1929 delivers his family to the precipice of ruin. When his beautiful wife, Solveig dies, he vows to return her body to her homeland, embarking on a Quixotic mission to build a ship and sail out of the prairie dust bowl. He is pulled back from the brink of madness by the unconditional love of his young children.

MAD SHIP stars Gil Bellows (SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, ‘24’, ‘Ally McBeal’), Rachel Blanchard (WHERE THE TRUTH LIES, ADORATION), Nikolaj Lie Kaas (ANGLES & DEMONS, THE WHISTLEBLOWER) and Line Verndal (One of Norway’s top leading actresses).

The film is directed by David Mortin and produced by Patricia Fogliato of Enigmatico Films in association with Buffalo Gal Pictures.  David and Patricia are a unique husband and wife filmmaking team, both of whom are writers, directors and producers.  MAD SHIP is their first dramatic feature film which they co-wrote.

“For many years I’ve felt greatly drawn to the scale of the true story that inspired the film; to the extreme behaviour, to the fact that the landscape itself is such a prominent character, that the story is so elemental” said Mortin.  “It’s about survival, and a very primal, universal sense of conflict; man vs. nature, man vs. man.”

MAD SHIP had its world premiere at the 2012 Whistler Film Festival where it was a finalist in the Borsos Competition for Best Canadian Feature.
