'The 11th Green' Investigates Aliens and Eisenhower at the Virtual KCET Cinema Series on February 25th
Q&A immediately following with writer/director/producer Christopher Munch, and actors Campbell Scott and Leith Burke.
When his 85-year-old father dies of a heart attack, Jeremy Rudd (Campbell Scott) is summoned to the exclusive California golf resort where he lived. Estranged from him for two decades, Jeremy is forced to confront his father’s secretive legacy and as an investigative journalist, uncovers the truth behind President Eisenhower’s long-suspected involvement in extraterrestrial events. This imaginative work of fact-and-fiction is by Award-winning independent filmmaker Christopher Munch.
Munch shared, “One of my earliest inspirations for "The 11th Green" was a dream of an unmade Robert Altman film, a dark comedy set in the Nevada desert involving a group of extremely unhappy workers in the classified aerospace world who could talk to no one, not even their families, about what they did for a living. Ultimately, I settled on a reporter as a framing device for my story, not just any journalist but a man trying to walk a tightrope strung between the poles of his interest in exotic technology, a powerful and estranged father who knew how to keep secrets, and a need to uphold his journalistic reputation by not going too far out on a limb.”
Immediately following the screening, Deadline's chief film critic Pete Hammond, who can also be seen on KCET’s Must See Movies, will moderate a Q&A with writer/director/producer Christopher Munch, and actors Campbell Scott and Leith Burke.
The film screens on Thursday, Feb. 25 at 7 p.m. PST. Only $10 per viewing link. Limited space available.
