“Our relationship as friends and co-directors began by showing each other mostly questionable, sometimes excellent cinema, so it only feels right that with the release of Threshold we get to do the same with the platform Arrow gives us. The range of movies championed on ARROW is massive. From the low-budget miracles of Wakaliwood to the beautifully unsettling devastation of We Need to Talk About Kevin, we want these selections to, hopefully like Threshold, inspire you to bring your own passions to life.” — Powell Robinson & Patrick R. Young
