First Film Announced: The Curse of Micah Rood (and Selected Shorts) – June 13th 2009

Micah Rood


June 13th marks the first film(s) shown by the NCC.  We have selected “The Curse of Micah Rood” as our feature presentation.  The film is based on a 18th century legend that took place right here in Norwich, CT. A reclusive apple farmer is terrorized by his haunted orchard and the vengeful spirit of a traveling peddler.

The evening will begin at 7:00pm with an assortment of short films to wet your film-loving whistle.  Our featured film “The Curse of Micah Rood” will be followed by a Q and A session with the filmmaker Alec Asten.

The first half of the evening includes Gone Fishing,” by award-winning British filmmaker Chris Jones.  “Gone Fishing” will be followed up by “Under My Garden,” a 20-minute Italian film directed by Andrea Lodovichetti, who has also won many awards.

Refreshments will be available throughout the evening.

Admission to this event is $7:00.
