The Rheem Theatre is starting a new monthly film program beginning this Friday, Nov. 6, entitled The Bay Area Film Series. This unique series will showcase Bay Area filmmakers' projects and provide local filmmakers with a venue to screen their films before an audience. The first film will be "Losing Her," the Best Feature winner at the Noor Film Festival in Los Angeles and the Golden Ace Award winner at the Las Vegas International Film Festival. "Losing Her" will show at 2, 4, and 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Director Dave Moutray will be at the 2 p.m. showing on Saturday, Nov. 7. Come meet Moutray and learn more about what it takes to write, produce and direct an independent film.
Moutray, an award-winning director and screenwriter has an M.A. in English and an M.F.A. in screenwriting. Originally from the Midwest, he fulfilled his love for film in the Bay Area. He is a co-founder of Crux Jinx Productions, LLC in San Francisco, and the founder of the Bay Area Film Mixer, which allows filmmakers from around the Bay to network and create a tighter community of like-minded film professionals.
As a filmmaker, his focus is on character and story driven narratives, regardless of genre. "Losing Her" is the story of a man distraught over the loss of his fiancée. He joins a grief therapy group, and interacts with a group of strangers who are also sharing the loss of a loved one. He finds comfort in their stories of grief, but his own story holds a devastating secret.
