First Tuesdays with the Midwest Independent Film Festival:

Chicago Premiere of DIG TWO GRAVES
Director Adams, Producer Connelly in attendance

Chicago, IL – First Tuesdays with The Midwest Independent Film Festival will host the highly anticipated Chicago Premiere of DIG TWO GRAVES at Landmark's Century Centre Cinema on Tuesday, March 3rd, with festivities beginning at 6 p.m.  This Illinois-made thriller stars SILENCE OF THE LAMBS star Ted Levine and newcomer Samantha Isler of NBC's SEAN SAVES THE WORLD in her feature film debut alongside a superlative Chicago cast, that includes Danny Goldring (THE DARK KNIGHT, CHICAGO OVERCOAT).  Director/co-writer Hunter Adams and Producers P.J. Fishwick and Claire Connelly will be in attendance for a post-screening discussion with the audience.


  
 

Film Synopsis: A girl's obsession with her brother's disappearance leads her on a nightmarish journey through a small town's harrowing landscape where she is faced with a deadly proposition. How far will she go to save the people she loves?

 

One part Gothic thriller, one part dark comedy and one part Dickensian mystery, DIG TWO GRAVES dramatizes the cycle of violence that perpetuates itself over generations in a small backwoods town. The title is a reference to a Confucian proverb that warns “When you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.”


First Tuesday Schedule: Tuesday, March 3, 2015 -- First Tuesday festivities begin with a Pre-Show Cocktail Reception at Landmark Century Centre Cinema (2828 North Clark) at 6 p.m.  The evening's Producers Panel begins at 6:30 p.m. in the theater.  DIG TWO GRAVES screens promptly at 7:30 p.m.  A post-screening reception will be held immediately following the film program at Avenue Tavern, 2916 N Broadway.
