US premiere for film set in Maine’s potato country
Question of the Day
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Two filmmakers who won acclaim for their documentary about Maine troop greeters are ready for the U.S. premiere of their new film, “Beneath the Harvest Sky.”
The first feature-length movie by Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly will be shown Friday at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
Set in the potato fields of northern Maine, the film is a coming-of-age tale of two teenage friends hoping to move to Boston. One works in the potato harvest while the other gets involved in drug smuggling.
The film-making couple said they wanted to do something different after their documentary, “The Way We Get By,” set in Bangor.
The movie, which had its international debut in Toronto in September, features familiar scenes in northern Maine, including border crossings and sprawling farms.
