"The Boarder" Movie Coming to Leitersburg Cinemas


THE BOARDER: FOSTER PARENT ASSOCIATION BRINGS FIRST EVER MOVIE PREMIERE TO WASHINGTON COUNTY, MD

Hagerstown, MD July 23, 2012 - Today, award winning author/screenwriter Jane E. Ryan announced her excitement to have the opportunity to bring her movie THE BOARDER to Hagerstown, MD before it hits theatres nationwide.  This is first major motion picture premiere Washington County, MD has ever offered to the public.

There will be 1 showtime of THE BOARDER at Leitersburg Cinemas in Hagerstown, MD on Saturday, August 25, 2012 at 2:00 PM.  The screenings will be followed by a Q/A session with Writer/Executive Producer Jane Elizabeth Ryan, Director Jolene Adams, actor Andy Scott Harris (Carl), along with Dan & Tina Hall.

To order tickets, go to:
2 PM Showtime - click here

Hollywood's young extraordinary star, Andy Scott Harris, plays Carl and appears with Leslie Stevens, Carlton Wilborn and Dee Wallace as Elizabeth. THE BOARDER, an independent, feature film, is the first movie that approaches issues experienced by ever increasing numbers of transplanted, foster or adopted children from a different and fresh perspective. Inspired by true-life events THE BOARDER is the sobering story of the Williams family and the process of learning to cope with an adopted child with a history of early trauma who all-too-soon demonstrates unique and frightening behaviors within the family.   

An adoptive mother, Jane Ryan is the author of Broken Spirits Lost Souls, a non-fiction book which offers a clear view of the effects of bonding interruptions due to neglect and/or abuse. Thanks to the success of her first book, Ryan wrote the award-winning screenplay entitled “The Boarder”, and then a novel of the same name, which demonstrates the long-term effects of trauma in early life in a most vivid, personal way - as seen from within the arms of a family desperate to understand and help their disturbed son.

Maryland Foster/Adoptive parents, Dan and Tina Hall of Hagerstown, continue to work with the Ryan Institute for Family Health to bring new and timely information about trauma-based illnesses to the world and to increase awareness about an ultimately preventable and treatable disorder known as Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD).  After years of searching the Hall’s discovered that their beloved community was sadly lacking in educational opportunities and therapeutic resources needed to identify, support and treat thousands of traumatized children and adults in their county.  The tedious search for information about trauma related disorders came at a huge price for the Hall's, as one of their adopted children suffers from severe post-traumatic stress disorder along with significant attachment issues.  

Dan Hall stated, “I remember seeing the teaser (trailer) for THE BOARDER for the first time last fall.  I sat with shivers running up and down my spine and remember thinking, 'Oh my God!, that’s us! We live this movie every day in our house.'  As I wiped away my tears, I was certain that this movie has the power to change lives."  After catching his breath, Hall continued, "You think super heroes don’t exist?  I look at my wife every single day and see how she moves the spirits in our five children. Tina's drive, commitment, and dedication to see the best in everyone touches me every day.  Our daughter with RAD is a true hero!  She reminds us of how vulnerable our children are and what can happen to severely damaged children. Her presence motivates us to find help for her and for families like ours within our community.”

The costs of continuing to close our eyes and to ignore this disorder which is increasing exponentially are extremely painful emotionally, physically, and monetarily.  For families who are learning to love these special needs children, attempting to find the appropriate and gentle care needed for healing is a heart wrenching process. Without the education THE BOARDER provides those interested in children's issues and the therapeutic approach the Ryan Institute for Family Health offers, families will continue to be left in the dark with few options but to put their unmanageable children back into an already flooded foster/adoptive care systems and be penalized by having to pay exorbitant child support while their disturbed youngsters are in care. All are penalties that are exacted from families still suffering are too hard and last too long.

There will be 1 showtime of THE BOARDER at Leitersburg Cinemas in Hagerstown, MD on Saturday, August 25, 2012 at 2:00 PM.  The screenings will be followed by a Q/A session with Writer/Executive Producer Jane Elizabeth Ryan, Director Jolene Adams, actor Andy Scott Harris (Carl), along with Dan & Tina Hall.

"Greencastle", Movie Shot in and Around Hagerstown Wins Film Festival Award in California; Film to Premiere to Public in Hagerstown March 31

"Greencastle" Movie Is Now An Award-Winning Film

Greencastle, PA - "Greencastle," a movie written, directed and staring Greencastle resident Koran Dunbar, has completed a world premier and its first festival competition in Idyllwild, CA.

Dunbar brought home the film's first award for Best Sound/Audio. The festival, about 2 hours southeast of Los Angeles, ran from January 12-15.

"Greencastle" is a quirky off beat faith-based drama about man’s search for meaning amidst the ache of despair. The story chronicles Poitier, a single father who works as an Assistant Manager at a small town pet shop, as he enters a "quarter-life crisis" impelled by a recent tragedy. Greencastle intertwines lives of loneliness and disconnection, fatefully leading Poitier toward an unexpected and sublime awakening.

"Our congratulations go out to John Avarese for his sound mixing and Matthew Datcher for directing audio throughout the film," said Dunbar.

The film was also nominated for the following awards:

-- Best Feature -- Best Screenplay -- Best Musical Score --

Dunbar said, "We can't thank the community, fans and especially our corporate sponsors enough for their dedication and support of their project." The film is being sponsored by:

- The Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau (http://www.marylandmemories.org)

- Design Data, Inc - Gaithersburg, MD (http://www.designdata.com)

- Wired Technologies - Hagerstown, MD (http://www.wiredtechnologies.com)

"We also want to thank WJAL-TV68 and the Leitersburg Cinemas for their ongoing support," said Dunbar.

The full length feature movie can be seen at a special red carpet event at the Maryland Theatre on March 31, 2012. Tickets are available online at the Maryland Theatre at www.mdtheatre.org.

For more information, please contact film public relations at info@greencastlethefilm.com. You can also follow this film on Facebook at Greencastle the Film or at www.greencastlethefilm.com.
