STATEWIDE - Two well known Maine filmmakers are at it again, making the Pine Tree state a focus on a national scale with their new film.
Beneath the Harvest Sky is Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly's newest narrative story.
It's about two men who have been friends since childhood, but over the year are faced with dangerous choices that make them enter adulthood too soon.
"A lot of it is about values and unconditional belief, trust, and loyalty you have," Pullapilly says. "I think so much of that story is where we were interested in, and how we could place some of those themes into two teenage boys that are best friends in high school."
"Growing up in Maine I was so far from Hollywood, where movies were being made, that I didn't think I could do it," Gaudet explains. "Now to make two movies in Maine, it's very important to me, and for people in Maine to see the work, and make movies in Maine. It's great to have that authentic Maine up on the big screen."
The film will open in select theaters in Maine Friday night, heading to New York next week.
The duo will also be speaking at a film workshop Friday at Husson University from 3:00-5:00 in Kominsky Hall.
The film will be shown at the following cinemas Friday night:
Reel Pizza Cinerama (Bar Harbor), Nickelodeon Cinemas (Portland), Railroad Square Cinemas (Waterville), Bangor Mall Cinemas (Bangor), Caribou Theatres (Caribou), Alamo Theatre (Bucksport), Colonial Theatre (Belfast), Temple Theater (Houlton).
