We’ve waited far too long for this. Kitao Sakurai’s  thriller Aardvark is finally available to watch online. Its been a long time coming since the 2010 Summer Series screening, but thanks to Revolver Entertainment the film will finally have a chance to reach a wider audience.  Inspired by true events and relationships, the film is part documentary, part fiction, and quite unique. What begins as a true to life account of evolves into a noir revenge-thriller.

“AARDVARK is perhaps the first fiction film to star a man blind since birth.  In a role inspired by his own life, Larry Lewis plays a blind man recovering from alcoholism.  When Larry joins a Jiu-Jitsu academy he begins a friendship with his charismatic instructor, Darren. But after Darren’s hard-partying ways are revealed and a shocking incident occurs, Larry goes on a search for answers, fueled by vengeance and his loyalty to his close friend.”

Watch the trailer on Vimeo. The film is now available on a variety of  VOD platforms, including Itunes, Amazon Instant Video and more.
