Northern Maine the Backdrop of New Film
The folks who brought you ‘The Way We Get By’ have filmed again in Maine.
Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly have debuted a film about living in rural America, and the illegal drug trade between the U.S. and Canada. The film is called ‘Beneath The Harvest Sky,’ set in Van Buren. The film features Aiden Gillen from ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘The Wire.’
The film follows two friends, one whom is trying to save money for a car and move out of town. The other, looks to follow in his father and uncles footsteps in the illegal drug trade along the border. The film is said to be fiction but is biased on the harsh reality of prescription drug abuse.
‘Beneath The Harvest Sky’ made its debut yesterday at the Toronto Film Festival. Hopes are that the film will be selected for national distribution.
