SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A movie written and produced by New Mexicans is about to begin filming in and around Albuquerque.

The New Mexico Film Office Monday announced that the feature “Burning Bodhi” will be produced in mid-July through the beginning of August.

The movie was written by University of New Mexico screenwriting professor Matthew McDuffie. He will also direct the film, which is being produced by Albuquerque resident Marshall Bear.

McDuffie says the film is about “your first dead friend.” He says it’s about “grief and laughter and celebrating life, about growing up; whatever that means.”

The cast includes The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco and Oscar nominee Virginia Madsen.
