Conceived and curated by filmmaker Joe Hahn, BEAST ASTRAY is an exhibit of artwork inspired by the motion picture, MALL. As an active participant within the art community, Hahn called upon his peers comprised of over 30+ critically acclaimed artists to interpret his film. The exhibit opens on Thursday September 25th at Known Gallery (441 N. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90036) and will continue to be on show until October 5th.
MALL is the debut feature film by Joe Hahn of LINKIN PARK. Co-starring Vincent D’Onofrio (who pulls triple duty as star/ producer/ screenwriter), Cameron Monaghan (TV’s SHAMELESS) and Gina Gershon (KILLER JOE), MALL examines a group of disaffected suburbanites who find themselves at a shopping mall in the midst of a seemingly random shooting. The film will be distributed throughout North American theaters and all major digital platforms on October 17th via Paragon Pictures in association with Silver Lining Entertainment.
As a member of the multi-platinum Grammy-winning rock band, Hahn is responsible for the beats, programming and keyboard heard in LINKIN PARK. He has also directed as many as 30 of the band’s ground-breaking music videos, and over a dozen short films and music videos for other musical acts. Now Hahn is making his full feature directorial debut with MALL, featuring a script adapted from Eric Bogosian’s 2001 novel of the same name by D’Onofrio, Joe Vinciguerra, and Sam Bisbee. “I find it refreshing to see this kind of point-of-view in contrast to today’s society that interacts digitally,” Hahn recently explained to Mashable. “When I read this script, it felt real and refreshing to show how ugly people can be as they hide their inner beasts after cracking their facades.”
Earlier this summer, Paragon Pictures, led by Evan Crooke, picked up the North American rights to MALL. As the theatrical distribution division of Osiris Entertainment, Paragon Pictures will release MALL nationwide.
