Bucksville is a dark, intruiging film directed by Chel White. It tells the story of Presley who has spent his young adulthood involved in a secret militia called The Lodge, which was started by his father. The Lodge is a small, self-appointed, secret society whose mission is to provide for their community by following through where the justice system has failed. Presley and his friends are commited to this group for life. When Presley's father dies, he begins to question the new direction the new leadership is taking, and he starts to dream for himself of a life free of judgement, violence and fear.
Chel White and his wife, Laura McGie, wrote Bucksville together. The result of their hard work and dedication is a well balanced, captivating, poised and eerie tale of self discovery and bravery under very high stakes. I was lucky enough to have the oppurtunity to play a small role in this artistic, powerful drama. There is nothing more fun than working on a independent film with a cast and crew who are dedicated to telling a great story, and who love what they are doing. I know how much work went into this film, and I'm so proud to be a part of it.
Bucksville has played at some great festivals this year, including New Hampshire Film Festival, The Bend Film Festival and will be showing at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival.
Bucksville is showing this next Sunday, November 20th, at The Northwest Film Fest at 6:00pm in Portland, Oregon. I will be attending with my friend, Lauren, and I can't wait to see the movie again. The last time I saw it, we snuck G into the theater and she was only one month old! If you are in Portland, you should buy your tickets and come support this fabulous film.
