Video Interview: Stelio Savante Talks What Remains and Angry Neighbors (Exclusive)

Many people find it to be difficult to embark on personal journeys of growth that allow them to forgive both their neighbors – and themselves – after violate moments and acts alter the course of their lives forever. SAG Award-nominated South African actor, Stelio Savante is playing two distinct characters who are both contending with that same problem in his recently released films, ‘What Remains’ and ‘Angry Neighbors.’

In ‘What Remains,’ Savante plays Scott, a police officer in a small Texas town, whose pastor, Marshall (Cress Williams), is forced to reckon with an act of forgiveness. After his wife was accidentally murdered five years earlier by a fellow town resident, Troy (Kellan Lutz), Marshall relies on his faith to forgive the ex-con, especially after he returns to town after he’s released from prison. Meanwhile, Scott helps the town sheriff, Maureen (Anne Heche in one of her final movie performances), investigate another murder that may be related to the pastor’s family.

The mystery thriller was written directed and executive produced by Nathan Scoggins. The drama was released in theaters earlier this month by Gravitas Ventures, and is now also streaming on Prime Video.

‘Angry Neighbors’ follows a novelist who vows revenge when his wealthy neighbor builds a hideous mega-mansion next door. In the movie, Savante plays Damenial Krento, and stars alongside an ensemble cast that includes Frank Langella, Stockard Channing, Ashley Benson and Bobby Cannavale.

The dark comedy was was written by James M. Bear and Hamid Torabpour, and directed by first-time feature filmmaker, Warren Brock. The movie was distributed in theaters earlier this month by Lionsgate, and is now also streaming on Prime Video.
