Hoosier film: PALACE

February 15-17

Writer/director Andrew Paul Davis attended Taylor University in north-central Indiana. The 94- minute drama PALACE is a result of his time there, and follows the family-fractured lives of a political-extremist auto-mechanic, a retired widower, and a repressed college student as their lives intertwine at a bar in rural Indiana.

PALACE, which premiered at Indianapolis’ acclaimed Heartland International Film Festival in October, makes its Fort Wayne debut February 15-17 at Cinema Center. The director will be in attendance for a talkback on February 15th as a part of Cinema Center’s new artist series.

Chris (Todd Bruno) & Chuck (Joe Martyn Ricke)

Joe Martyn Ricke, a frequenter of Fort Wayne’s music scene, stars in the film as Chuck.

CineSportsTalk.com praised the film, saying “Its acting is sublime, and character work top notch… The stand out, in this critics opinion, is Joe Martyn Ricke… I wasn’t watching a film, I was watching Chuck’s struggle with alcohol and reconnecting with his daughter.”

Filmed up and down Indiana, PALACE is an honest and flagrantly Hoosier examination of generations crossing paths.

The film has a recommended audience of 17+.
