Writer / Director and Festival alumnus John Putch (Mojave Phone Booth IIFF 2007) joins us to present his latest ensemble
comedy as our 2008 Opening Night Film. Route 30 is entertaining, funny, thought-provoking and
heart-warming. Don’t miss it.
3 interconnecting scenarios from the Lincoln Highway in South Central Pennsylvania are skillfully woven
together. ‘Deer Hunters Wives’ tells of the frustrations of Civil War tour guide Mandy who obsesses on Jennie Wade, the
only civilian killed at the battle of Gettysburg. Meanwhile her friend June struggles to convince her husband to join her
in an internet porn scheme to make extra money.
‘What I Believe’ focuses on a man who seeks the help of a Christian Scientist to heal his back pain and help explain
his strange encounter with a Sasquatch that chased him down the mountainside. ‘Original Bill’ is the story of a writer who
buys a farmhouse in the country hoping to find unique inspiration to write his novel. He is sidetracked by his Amish
neighbor, who smokes, drinks, swears and secretly watches his TV. Bill befriends her and helps her realize her dream of
seeing a live play in a theater.
