Southern Maine Filmmakers

Writer/director Marc Powers of North Berwick is showing his new 90-minute murder mystery, "Into The Black," this Sunday at Smuttynose Brewery's Unfiltered Film Series in Portsmouth, N. H. More info can be had at the website of Green Monster Films.
A review from the MicrocinemaScene Web site called Powers' second foray into independent filmmaking "a slick, brilliantly-crafted, metropolitan morality tale that will surely resonate with the viewer long after it has ended. It's a smart film that assaults the viewer's sensibilities on two distinct levels. On one, it's a gritty oblique crime drama in a brash contemporized 'film noir' style and on the other, it's an unapologetically unsettling-to-the-point-of-disorienting psychological drama."

The film features a young man, Neil Murphy, who returns to his hometown after an eight-year absence, to attend the wake of his best friend. However, when Neil begins to suspect his friend was murdered, he has to decide if he is ready to deal with the truth about their past. [Link]
This will be followed by a screening of "The Listeners," written by Lars Trodson of Eliot, and produced by Bulkhead Pictures of New Hampshire.
