WOODLAND – The Super 322 Drive-In of Woodland will present a special screening of the locally-filmed movie, “Generational Sins.”
It will take place from 8 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 9. The movie, which is rated PG-13, has scenes that were filmed at the drive-in.
According to its Web site, the movie centers around two estranged brothers who are brought together by the death of their mother whose dying wish was to see them return to their birthplace and reunite with their abusive, alcoholic father.
The brothers set out on an emotional journey that leads them to their hometown, suffocating with the darkness of memories the younger brother can’t remember as the older wants nothing more than to forget.
As each reconnects to the town and its people, the brothers struggle to find the meaning of “home” – both for those who stay, and those who leave.
Together they must confront their father – the memory and the man himself, and are ultimately forced to choose between a bitter existence or a life forgiveness.
According to its Web site, “Generational Sins” explores themes of home, grace and forgiveness, diving into the nature of how these concepts, experiences and ideals impact the very decisions we make, and thereupon, the ramifications they impose on the lives of ourselves as well as others.
Director Spencer T. Folmar, a native of West Branch Area School District, says “Generational Sins is a powerful and emotional drama about family history and the inevitable task of facing your past.
