My Father's Son

The Sitka Film Society presents
a film by JorDan Fuller 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 15, at the Downtown Coliseum. $5 Admission:

After picking up his son Carlos from a Mexican orphanage, Miles and the boy head out on the road for the states. Struggling to connect and unable to speak each other's language, their new beginning is quickly marred as they become stranded in the desert overnight. Finding themselves blood-related strangers they must now face the past and any possibility of a future - together. 25 minutes.

The film has been screened across the country at various short film festivals, and has garnered awards for acting and directing. The film took top prize for Best Short Film at the NYC Picture Start Film Festival. Xander Bailey won the Golden Halo Acting Achievement Award from the Southern California Motion Picture Council, and the audience award for the NYC Picture Start Film Festival.

The film society screened Fuller's other feature, ``The Runners'' in 2007 at the Sitka Filmmakers event here. Fuller grew up in Sitka and graduated from Sitka High before studying film at the University of Arizona. He is in Sitka fishing this summer.

Join the film society for ``My Father's Brother'' 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 15, at the Downtown Coliseum Theater. The director, JorDan Fuller, will answer questions after the film.
