The Garden and the Wilderness Premiering This Week at Rome Int'l Film Festival
Film By Director Craig Whitney Comes to Georgia for World Premiere
ROME, GEORGIA (09/07/2011)(readMedia)-- Better Archangel Pictures is pleased to announce that the company's latest film production, The Garden and the Wilderness, will make its world premiere this Friday at the Rome International Film Festival in Rome, Georgia. The festival was recently named one of MovieMaker Magazine's "Top 25 Film Festivals" of 2011.
The Garden and the Wilderness examines the intersection between the roles of work and family in our lives, and how they each can both help and hinder our ability to deal with life's hardships. After 30 years spent caring for a Texas hunting estate, ranch hand Will James must confront the prospect of moving on from his life's work when he learns that the property will be sold following the owner's death. A final visit from the late owner's son offers him a chance to reflect on his past, and to figure out what to make of himself in the uncertain future that awaits his family.
"The actors and filmmakers who involved in bringing The Garden and the Wilderness to the screen could not be more thrilled to premiere our movie at the Rome International Film Festival," says the film's director, Craig Whitney. "RIFF is one of the most exciting emerging film festivals in the country, and it is an unbelievable pleasure to be able to present our film to audiences there."
The Garden and the Wilderness was written and directed by Craig Whitney, whose last ?lm Harvest Home made its debut at the Cannes Film Festival in 2009. Produced by Stephanie Huettner (The Peacemaker, Mighty Mutant Mollusks) and photographed by Christopher Rusch (Closing Night), The Garden and the Wilderness stars Larry Grant Harbin, DJ Economou, Terri Merritt Bennett, Billy Kring and Julia Lorenz
The Garden and the Wilderness will make its world premiere on Friday, September 9 at 1:00 PM in Heritage Hall in Rome, Georgia. Tickets to the screening and other films at the Rome International Film Festival can be purchased online or in person at the festival.
