“The Mountain Crumbles”, a feature drama by Portland/New York based director Matt Jay, will see it’s home state premiere this sunday, October 17th, at the 2010 Salem Film Festival.

The film tracks the events of a weekend camping trip between two brothers who appear to have grown apart over the years. The already fragile relationship receives it’s real test when the brothers meet and are joined by a mysterious young woman, whose presence changes the dynamic of the trip.

“The Mountain Crumbles” was shot entirely on Mount Hood, and features a cast and crew of young Northwest based or originating talent. This includes and original score by composer Keegan DeWitt, who has received recent critical acclaim for his work on another Oregon-set film, Aaron Katz’s IFC acquired “Cold Weather”.

The film will be screening as part of Salem Film Festival’s Northwest Emerging Artists competition, which is dedicated to showcasing the creative and inspired work of serious filmmakers, who either live in the Pacific Northwest, or who shot on locations in this same area. Cast members Benjamin Parslow, Zach Sanchez and Natalie Buller, as well as cinematographer Sam Kuhn will be in attendance for a Q&A session.

Advance tickets may be purchased through Salem Film Festival’s website:
