Local film makers inviting Alaskans for a first look at their new feature film, Peaks & Valleys.
Burnhouse Pictures in association with Baird Media are proud to present a special one-night only first look screening of the Alaskan Thriller, Peaks & Valleys. The all-new feature film starring Kevin T. Bennett and Kitty Mahoney is set to appear in red carpet fashion at the beautiful Glenn Massay Theater April 1, 2019.
This news comes with the films announcement as an Official Selection at the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival, setting the stage for a very promising festival season. The tour follows the success of directors Michael Burns’ and Dean Q. Mitchell’s all Alaskan feature Proper Binge, which had an amazing festival run, full of accolades last year and is set for an upcoming release in 2019. With the potential of further laurels on the horizon for Peaks & Valleys, Burns and writer Michael B. Dillon are certain of one thing; “Alaska gets to see it first!”
Wrapped in plastic and thrown from a plane into a rural Alaskan lake would usually mean the end of the story. For Bailey (Kitty Mahony), it’s just the beginning. Waking naked, battered and horrifically traumatized, she finds herself trapped in a secluded cabin somewhere in the wilds of Alaska. Her only company, Jack (Kevin Bennett), is a hard-nosed man of few words who makes no question of his desire to be left alone. With winter taking its grip on the surrounding wilderness, Bailey must overcome the aftermath of her ordeal and survive long enough to make it home. With Jack as her only aid, she soon suspects that his secrets were never meant to leave the cabin.
As anyone in the Alaskan film community will tell you, shooting an independent feature in our great state is no easy feat. Without the help of local talent, professionals, businesses and citizens, they can say without a doubt that Peaks & Valleys would never have come to fruition. With the support of the community and amazing individuals, like producers Charles Baird and Steven Silba, no one would ever have the chance to experience the passion and art of our very own local talent. It is with this in mind, that the filmmakers behind Peaks & Valleys have decided to share it at home first.
The doors are set to open at the Glenn Massay Theater, located on the Mat-Su College campus, at 6:00PM, offering a meet and greet with the cast and crew. Showtime will follow at 7:00PM with a special screening of Quinton Oliver Smiths short film, 12:34, starring Bradford Jackson (Proper Binge). Tickets are $12.00 and can be purchased in advance through MyAlaskaTix, at the Glenn Massay Box Office or at the door on event night… You can follow the film on Facebook at www.facebook.com/peaksandvalleysmovie/ , where you can find a link to the trailer.
