SON OF CLOWNS

Minor television star Hudson Cash has returned from Los Angeles to his native North Carolina after the cancellation of his show, regrouping and trying to figure out his next career move. His family operates a failing backyard circus, and Cash reckons with that failure and his own while developing a relationship with a clerk at the local balloon shop. That's the premise of the new full-length "microbudget" feature by Raleigh writer and director Evan Kidd of RockSet Productions, whom you may know from recent shorts like Displacement Welcomed. Set in Raleigh, the film was shot in the Triangle, the Triad, and Wilmington in ten production days, with local cast and crew, and all local musicians (T0W3RS, Zack Mexico, Jackson Honeycutt) on the soundtrack. Can a "son of clowns" ever escape the festive futility of his birthright? Find out in this homegrown premiere at the Cary Theater. —Brian Howe
