San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
The directorial debut short film from Actor-Director Devin Kordt-Thomas My Night with Andrew Cunanan is making the rounds of the film festival circuit and will have its US premiere at the AMC Theatre Kansas City FilmFest in Kansas City, Missouri this week on Friday, April 13th at 9:30 p.m. as part of the short film program. A second screening will be held on Sunday, April 15th at 5 p.m.
In a cross-country murder spree that ended with the killing of fashion icon Gianni Versace, My Night with Andrew Cunanan is a docudrama crime thriller based on real life events in San Francisco in 1997. Its the story of one young gay drunken man’s encounter with Cunanan days before he would begin that spree that would earn him the dubious honor of the youngest serial killer on the FBI’s Top 10 Most Wanted list. Could one decision made during that encounter have prevented the murder of five men? This cautionary tale invites us to consider whether fate can be changed by exploring ‘What if…?’
What is it like to encounter a serial killer?
Before Versaces murder four other men were killed starting just days after my encounter with Andrew Cunanan. This personal narrative invites the viewer to contemplate how one decision can change history. says Actor-Director Kordt-Thomas.
The cast includes Adrian Bustamante, Devin Kordt-Thomas, Paul Baird, and Bob Saenz. Notable crew include Dipayan (Deepa) Pathak (Director of Photography), and Editors Franck Tabouring and Justin Lachance (with past films screening in Sundance, Toronto International Film Festival, Berlinale, and the AFI Film Festival). Original music by Composer John Turner.
Consulting Producer Roberta Marie Munroe (Award-winning filmmaker, writer, consultant and published author of How Not To Make A Short Film: Secrets From A Sundance Programmer) shares this regarding the project:
