'Two Days Back,' a motion picture by Mont Alto students, to show in Gettysburg

2/3/2012 —

TWO DAYS BACK (IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2083385/), a low-budget motion picture made entirely by students of the Mont Alto Film Project, will be the matinee feature at the Majestic Theatre in Gettysburg on Saturday, March 3, 2012. The Majestic is located at 25 Carlisle Street in Gettysburg. Tickets are available for the 12:30 p.m. showing online or by calling the theatre box office at 717-337-8200.

TWO DAYS BACK first debuted at the Capitol Theatre in Chambersburg in November 2011. The film 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.

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 (2009-10 through 2010-11 academic years). “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.”
