Mont Alto Film Project movie, 'Two Days Back,' to show in Gettysburg

"Two Days Back," (IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2083385/), a low-budget motion picture made entirely by students of the Mont Alto Film Project at Penn State, will be the matinee feature at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 3, at the Majestic Theatre in Gettysburg. The Majestic is located at 25 Carlisle Street in Gettysburg, Pa. Tickets are available for the 12:30 p.m. showing online or by calling the theatre box office at 717-337-8200.

"Two Days Back" first debuted at the Capitol Theatre in Chambersburg in November 2011. The film is described as a mystery with traces of horror. The story centers on Emma, a young woman who had been lost for two days in the woods as a child. She remembered nothing of the ordeal until years later when accompanying a group of environmental students to catch forestry students suspected of illegal foresting. After people go missing, the groups join forces and Emma comes face-to-face with the dark mystery of her past.

The film was written and made in its entirety by a handful of undergraduate students and their faculty adviser, Kevin Boon, at Penn State Mont Alto as part of a four-semester practicum in filmmaking (2009-10 through 2010-11 academic years).

“It was designed to provide students with hands-on experience to result in real-world achievement,” says Boon, associate professor of English. “In this case, a legitimate, independent low-budget film was completed.”
