Quench (2007)

Quench (Parker 2007)

Thus begins our mini-series devoted to the films of Zack Parker! His four films fall distinctly into two halves. We discuss the first two films first, starting here with his second film Quench (2007). The first two films, including this one, were made on a shoestring budget and are more interesting in terms of seeing his development and trajectory as a filmmaker.
