Besetment”, an indie-produced feature film from Barbed Wire Films, will have it’s first public premiere on Sunday October 30th at the Volcanic Theater Pub in Bend, OR at 6pm.

Filmed in Mitchell, Prineville, Ashland, and Bend, OR, the film tells the tale of Amanda Millard, a down-on-her-luck girl, desperate to find a job.  When she gets a call from the Oregon Hotel in Mitchell, things start to look up. Mildred Colvin, the owner of the Oregon Hotel is a kind lady, and her live-in son and local mechanic Billy, though a little slow, seems quite taken with Amanda. In time, though, what started as a dream job in the scenic rural town of Mitchell, turns into a nightmare that Amanda cannot seem to escape.

Starring Abby Wathen, Marlyn Mason, and Michael Meyer, “Besetment” held a private cast & crew screening on October 8th, and will begin it’s voyage on the film festival circuit with it’s first stop at Flicker’s Rhode Island Film Festival in November.

The film was written, directed, and produced by Brad Douglas of Barbed Wire Films, who’s short film “The Settling”, also currently on a film festival run, took the Grand Prize Jury Award for Short Film at the Klamath Independent Film Festival on October 1st.  Refusing to take a break with two new films just released, Barbed Wire Films will also be starting production on their next feature in November.

If you live in or around Bend, OR, check out the Volcanic Theater Pub at 6pm on Sunday October 30th to see this Oregon-produced thriller.
