Local Lens series: PETER & JOHN

Thursday, July 16th, 2015 7:30 pm
$10.00
2 Screenings! Thurs. 7/16 & Fri. 7/17, 7:30pm BUY TICKETS HERE FOR THURSDAY 7/16, 7:30PM BUY TICKETS HERE FOR FRIDAY 7/17, 7:30PM We are delighted to welcome filmmaker and Kingdom County director Jay Craven back to the Hall to screen his new Nantucket-based film, Peter and John.  Jay Craven’s Nantucket-based film, “Peter and John,” is based on the 19th century novel “Pierre et Jean” by Guy de Maupassant and it tells the story of two brothers whose relationship strains when the younger one receives news of an unexpected inheritance—and both brothers become attracted to the same young woman who arrives on their island. The film is set in 1872 Nantucket after the demise of the whaling industry, before the rise of tourism, and in the wake of the still-reverberating Civil War. It was shot there during the spring of 2014. As with his 2012 film, Northern Borders, Peter and John was produced through Craven’s Movies from Marlboro project, a partnership between KCP and Marlboro College, where 20 professionals mentor and collaborate with 30 students from 10 colleges who enroll at Marlboro for a film intensive semester that includes production of a feature film for international release. Maupassant’s novel was widely heralded by critics and writers – and it was cited as an influence by Tolstory, Nabokov, and van Gogh – for the beauty of its images and its potent themes of family, class, legacy, legitimacy, and self-discovery.
