Door Eleven Productions Announces Premiere of Latest Film, “Nicky”
Boston-based production company to premiere dramatic thriller “Nicky” on Thursday, February 7 at Landmark Kendall Square Cinema in Cambridge
BOSTON, Mass. – January 23, 2013 Door Eleven Productions, one of Boston’s leading independent film and video production companies, today announced its latest dramatic thriller, “Nicky,” will premiere Thursday, February 7 at the Landmark Kendall Square Cinema in Cambridge. The 32-minute short film marks the third time Door Eleven has used Boston as the backdrop for an emotionally gripping tale, further solidifying the production company’s rising star amongst Boston’s burgeoning film scene. “Nicky” tells the visceral tale of an emotionally damaged man seeking retribution for his young brother’s kidnapping and the toll his obsession takes on him and those around him. A project in the works for more than six years, “Nicky” marks the third collaboration between director/cinematographer Dom Portalla and lead actor/producer Ken Flott. The film was shot on location across Greater Boston and features a cast comprised exclusively of area actors.
“What really drew me to adapt ‘Nicky’ for the big screen was the profound sense of sadness in the narration,” said Portalla, founder of Door Eleven, who adapted the screenplay from Flott’s original short story. “For ‘Nicky’s’ main character — his entire world sort of ended the day his brother disappeared and from that moment on, he became disconnected from everyone and everything around him. While the circumstances may certainly differ, I feel that what’s at the heart of the film is an experience many can relate to.”
WHAT: Premiere of Door Eleven Production’s dramatic thriller, “Nicky.” Cost of admission: $10. Q&A session with cast and crew to follow screening.
WHERE: Landmark Kendall Square Cinema, 355 Binney Street, Cambridge, Mass., 02142
