Two Minneapolis filmmakers continue to live a dream with the release of their new film “Cave Women on Mars” at the Heights Theater in Columbia Heights on Saturday, April 12 at 6:30 pm.
The film tells about a journey to the red planet where two astronauts, Lt. Elliott (Daniel Sjerven), and Capt. Jackson (Josh Craig), are on the world’s first manned mission to Mars only to find the planet to have an earth-like atmosphere, vast forests and stunning warrior cave women.
As the two explorers become entrenched in the fates of the opposing female tribes, Lt. Elliott struggles to discover his destiny. Can he unravel the mystery before it’s too late?
Christopher R Mihm, writer and director, and Josh Craig, co-producer and actor, started their film careers in 2005 producing the multi-award-winning films, “The Monster of Phantom Lake” (2006) and “It Came From Another World! (2007).” Some scenes from The Monster of Phantom Lake were filmed in the Woodbury area.
Cave Women on Mars continues the duo’s tradition of creating authentic black and white 1950s-style films that are family safe — though not specifically geared toward children— and fun for all. Cave Women on Mars was filmed in and around the Twin Cities metro area using local talent.
The WCCO Mighty Wurlitzer organ will be played live at 6:30 p.m. with the film beginning at 7:30 pm.
Free cake will be served following the film with a special “on-screen trivia/sing-along” edition of the duo’s first film, The Monster of Phantom Lake, (free to all attendees) screening thereafter. Cast and crew will be in attendance.
Tickets are $5 at the door or can be purchased in advance at www.shadowcreekstudios.com for $6. The advanced tickets also serve as a $1 off coupon towards the purchase of the film’s DVD.
