Mitten Movie Project comes to Kalamazoo

July 19, 2006

KALAMAZOO--Detroit-based independent film promoters from the Mitten Movie Project come to Kalamazoo this Friday, July 21, with a 7:30 p.m. double-feature screening of "The Passenger" and the first episode of "InZer0" at the Little Theatre on the campus of Western Michigan University.

Admission to the films is $8. "Passenger" director Jamie Sonderman and executive producer Ed Gardiner will meet with moviegoers in the Little Theatre lobby beginning at 7 p.m.

"The Passenger," a full-length feature filmed entirely in Detroit, is the story of an artist, John, trapped in a corporate job. One night he ventures into the city's underground art scene, where he is seduced by an alternate lifestyle and values. The film is rated R for sexual content, violence and drug use.

Five of the planned 12 episodes of the new science-fiction TV series "InZer0" are complete. The series is set in an apocalyptic world in the near future where the population has been decimated and is unable to have children. Producers expect to complete the 12 episodes of "InZer0" by early 2007 and hope to sign an agreement shortly thereafter for broadcast rights of the series.

The Little Theatre is located at the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver Street on WMU's historic East Campus. There is free off-street parking behind the theatre.

For more information about "The Passenger" or "InZer0" or information on submitting a film to the Mitten Movie Project, contact Ed Gardiner at ed@thoughtcollide.com.
