The project provided members of the college community with a unique opportunity to assist in the production of a feature-length film and helped make it a uniquely West Virginia project.
The film, which will be screened July 2 at 7:30 p.m. at Carmike Morgantown Mall 12, was shot in West Virginia, showcasing the state’s people and natural beauty in partnership with the West Virginia Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Set in the historic logging town of Cass, W.Va., “Angel’s Perch” is the story of a Pittsburgh architect who returns home to help his grandmother, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. The film deals with the relationship between past and present, memory and loss. It stars Ally Walker (“The Protector,” “Sons of Anarchy,” “Moon Over Miami”); Joyce Van Patten (“Marley and Me,” “Grown Ups”); Ashley Jones (“The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Trueblood”); and Ellen Crawford (“ER,” “Desperate Housewives”).
The filmmakers are using an innovative screening tool called Tugg that allows communities to request screenings in their towns. Admission to the screening is $10, and can be reserved by visiting www.tugg.com/events/4407.
