Indie Film Project: Prodigy Special Screening
Happy hour with filmmakers in a private room from 5:30 - 6:30 at Hotel Paradox followed by a special screening of Indie film "Prodigy". A Q&A with the film's co-directors will follow the screening.
"Prodigy" is the feature film directorial debut from co-writers/co-directors Alex Haughey and Brian Vidal. This psychological thriller has a familiar premise: A misunderstood and unnaturally powerful young girl winds up in the custody of government officials and scientists who have put her on lockdown in order to discover the secret to her abilities and, as a mask for their own fear and hatred of The Other, for the safety and security of innocent civilians. The research team's last ditch effort to crack the highly intelligent, dangerous, and abrasively antagonistic child is to bring in a psychologist who specializes in treating children and brings in some emotional baggage of his own. The Indie badge is very strong with Prodigy, for good and for ill, but it succeeds quite well in narrowing the focus to a character level, something big-budget action pics rarely do.
The film stars Richard Neil, Savannah Liles, Jolene Andersen, Emilio Palame, David Linski, Harvey Q. Johnson, and Aral Gribble. Prodigy also features Director of Photography/Executive Producer Hisonni Johnson."
