John Holmstrom's Acting Debut in Loren Cass
Chris Fuller, an independent filmmaker from St. Petersburg, Florida, recently put the finishing touches on Loren Cass. Fortunately, in making those finishing touches he forgot to edit out five of the most important seconds in cinema thisyear: John Holmstrom's big screen debut.
The plot of this "sunshine noir" flick has to do with adolescents coming to terms with their lives after the 1996 St. Petersburg riots. As you can see from the Gen-Z variation on 69 depicted in the poster to the left, that rite of passage has changed some in recent years.
Loren Cass will be making it's official U.S. premiere at the 9th annual Dennis Hopper CineVegas 2007. Dubbed "the World's Most Dangerous Film Festival" by somebody who probably didn't put a lot of thought into it, the festival will be held June 6-16th, 2007 in the Brenden Theatres at the Palms Casino Resort. Loren Cass screens Saturday, June 9th at 1:00pm (the premiere) & Sunday, June 10th at 7:30pm.
