Hunter Gatherer (Josh Locy | USA | 85 min.)

Official Link:


Ashley Douglas thinks everything should fall into place when he’s released after three years in prison. His friends should come to his welcome home party. (They don’t.) His girlfriend, Linda, should greet him with open arms and open legs. (She doesn’t.) So Ashley, a forty-something African-American, restarts his life with next to nothing: no friends, no lovers, no connections. All he has is a bedroom in his mom’s house, a box of treasures he buried in his backyard, and a nostalgic and deeply ingrained need to be with Linda-his one, true love. That is, until he meets a new friend, Jeremy, and things start to turn around.


JOSH LOCY, writer/director, was born in the mountains of Virginia, studied literature in east Tennessee and, after deciding against becoming a Southern Baptist minister, moved to Los Angeles in 2004 to pursue his dream of making feature films.

Once in LA, it didn’t take long for Josh to get work in the film industry, working on commercials and independent films. In 2007, Josh became the assistant to David Gordon Green, and has worked with him on three of his films.

In 2010, through his work in film and commercials, Josh became a member IATSE local 800, the Art Director’s Guild, and has worked in this capacity for many great filmmakers including David O. Russell, Chris Smith, and Peter Berg, among many others. His work as a production designer, while in itself a true creative outlet, has increased Josh’s film knowledge and fueled his passion for making films.

Hunter Gatherer is Josh’s first film.
