From The Press Release
The highly anticipated ‘Paranormal Hitchcock’ style film, THE HARBINGER, will premiere at the 2022 DANCES WITH FILMS (DWF:LA) independent film festival Friday, June 17th, 9:30 PM at the TCL Chinese Theater.
As they celebrate 25 years of championing innovation, talent and creativity, festival founders Leslee Scallon and Michael Trent have declared this year’s lineup “most dynamic and diverse we’ve ever seen.”
The film follows Daniel (Will Klipstine) and Theresa Snyder (Amanda MacDonald) as move their troubled young daughter Rosalie (Madeleine McGraw) to a quaint town. Soon after, neighbors begin to die. The townspeople suspect Rosalie and shun the Snyder family. Fearing something evil followed them, the tormented parents seek the advice of a Native American seer (Irene Bedard), but when it continues and a detective (Vince Duvall) starts looking into the mysterious deaths, the Snyders must do whatever it takes to protect their family.
THE HARBINGER, written by Amy Mills and Will Klipstine and directed by Will Kipstine, was filmed on location in northern Minnesota where a local, Danny Feltus, became one of the first beneficiaries of the Veteran Films program, which provides a paid training environment for Native Americans, Veterans, and Victims of Domestic Violence. The nonprofit was able to hire Danny, a Native Veteran, and more than 48 others similar to him to work on the film and be trained by a talented team of industry professionals. The film was also made possible through the work of three Native executive producers, several Native actors, and a Native storyline that is slated to expand over the next two sequels.
Veteran Films is making history by giving voice to Native Americans in entertainment. The mission of Veteran Films is threefold: to increase the value of tribal property and businesses by attracting commerce to distressed areas, to train and employ veterans, tribal members, and victims of domestic abuse in all realms of the entertainment industry, and to provide sustainable sources of income for these communities, their families, and their businesses.
