Mont Alto Film Project feature film, TWO DAYS BACK, premiere set

10/31/2011 —

The Mont Alto Film Project will premiere its student-run, low-budget motion picture, TWO DAYS BACK (IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2083385/), on November 18 and 19 at the Capitol Theatre Center at 159 S. Main Street in Chambersburg. The film was written and made in its entirety by a handful of undergraduate students and their faculty advisor, Dr. Kevin Boon, at Penn State Mont Alto as part of a four-semester practicum in filmmaking.  “It was designed to provide students with hands-on experience to result in real-world achievement,” says Boon, associate professor of English. “In this case, a legitimate, independent low-budget film was completed and will have its debut.”

TWO DAYS BACK is described as a mystery with traces of horror. The story centers on Emma, a young woman who had been lost for two days in the woods as a child. She remembered nothing of the ordeal until years later when accompanying a group of environmental students to catch forestry students suspected of illegal foresting. After people go missing, the groups join forces and Emma comes face-to-face with the dark mystery of her past.

Tickets are available for two showings at the Capitol Theatre box office. The first showing is set for Friday, November 18 at 7:30 pm; the second for Saturday, November 19 at 8 pm. Tickets are $10 per person with panel discussions immediately following both showings where audience members may interact with the actors and filmmakers. Additionally, the filmmakers and actors will meet and greet attendees at a pre-showing reception (November 18 only); the reception and show price is $25. Proceeds will benefit the Cumberland Valley Film Club and the Capitol Theatre.
