CINEMA PURGATORIO \ Atlanta
A homegrown SC comedy screens at Home Grown GA. Join us for a fantastic meal featuring local meats and produce at 6 PM. Dinner will include fried chicken, local grilled catfish, a mixed green salad, collards, seasonal beans, cornbread, and banana pudding for dessert.
Screening begins at 7 PM and will be followed by a brief Q&A with the filmmakers.
When husband-and-wife indie filmmakers Neil (Chris White) and Liz Shaw (Traysie Amick) hear that Bill Murray will be a judge at the "Low Country Boil 48-Hour Film Festival," they pack their bags and head to Charleston, picking up Neil's angst-ridden daughter Hope (Harriet White), cameraman Alan Ray (Alan Ray), and BFF/sound recordist Jen Meyers (Monica Eva Foster) along the way. All hell breaks loose when twirling girl actress Bree Carrington (Reid Cox) and fading 80's action star Nicholas "Nick" Teasle (Lavin Cuddihee) don't get Liz's subtle, Bill Murray-esque screenplay or Neil's patient direction. Adding to the stress: would-be documentarian Clark Wiggins (Jeff Driggers) whose camera is everywhere they'd rather it not be, pretentious filmmaking foe Dos Midler (Alex Smith), and Neil's sexy former flame Jackie Miller (Nealy Glenn). Suddenly the Shaw's filmmaking weekend in the Holy City goes from bad to worse, leaving them lost in the first circle of Hell. RT: 98 minutes
