Opening Date Announcement: From Executive Producer MICHAEL MADSEN – Director Vilan Trub’s gritty, politically charged crime thriller THE DIRTY KIND – Los Angeles Theatrical Release Friday, May 3rd !

Raymond (DUKE WILLIAMS), a young private investigator specializing in divorce, gets too ambitious and takes on a case that involves more than just snapping pictures of cheating couples. While searching for the estranged daughter of a client, he discovers that she works as a stripper under the name Natalie Cottontail (VICTORIA WALLACE ). Natalie’s exploits bring together a desperate collection of lost souls – sucking everyone down a drain of despair.


Vilan Trub is a cinephile who jumpstarted his career by filming movies without a budget or a crew in his neighborhood in Queens, New York. Learning film technique by watching every movie he could get his hands on dating back to the silent era, and studying their structure, he was inspired to start writing at a young age. While still in high school, he got his first job as a writer for covering the New York Mets.

Trub then began his professional career writing hip-hop music videos and working with the industry’s biggest stars such as 50 Cent, and even working as a copywriter, helping international brands tell their stories. Not happy with the trajectory he was on, Trub accumulated his own equipment, studied it and set forth to make feature films. His debut movie Susie Q, an homage to the early films of Truffaut and Godard, premiered at the NYC Independent Film Festival and was viewed by people around the world on Amazon Prime. He currently resides in Forest Hills, Queens with his wife and son.

Vilan Trub’s Filmography – Susie Q (2016) – Writer, Director, Producer, Director of Photography – Two down-and-out brothers spend their days fighting over the attention of a neighborhood bad girl while plotting how to rob her. Stiffed (2016) – Director of Photography – Waiter decides to take matters into his own hands after repeatedly getting stiffed by customer to get what they owe him when things get out of control.
