Being the first to pioneer a new, unfamiliar frontier can ultimately prove to be a challenge for even the strongest people, as seen in the sci-fi thriller, ‘Settlers.’ First-time feature film writer-director Wyatt Rockefeller crafted an intimate, character-driven drama that explores how a small, close-knit family must conquer the daunting wilderness on their own without any connections with outside civilization.

RLJE Films will release the movie on DVD for an SRP of $27.97 and on Blu-ray for an SRP of $28.96 this Tuesday, February 15. The official distribution comes after ‘Settlers’ had its world premiere at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival. IFC Midnight then released the thriller in theaters, on Digital Rental and VOD on July 23, 2021.
