Salt Lake City, Utah, November 24, 2015 (Newswire.com) – Spring City, Utah residents are enthusiastic about Metamora Films’ latest documentary entitled, Life Under The Horseshoe. The documentary short, directed and produced by Matt Duhamel and his wife Heather, is both historic and entertaining, while focusing on Spring City’s unique past and paying tribute to the town’s live, stage radio show. The 25-minute documentary is airing on KJZZ-TV Sunday, November 29th at 6:30pm.
The documentary interviews Mark and Vicki Allen, while learning more about their interesting, but opposite family history. The film also interviews Lawrence and Lana Gardner, the current owners of historical Victory Hall, a one-hundred-year-old restored vaudeville theater on Main Street. Duhamel even includes a reenactment scene of “Spit & Whittle” Avenue, where Charlie (1885-1936), son of Simon Beck, had a bench the women of the town called the “Bummer’s Bench”.
“Transforming hearts and minds through film” is the mission of Matt Duhamel’s independent film company, Metamora Films based near Salt Lake City, Utah. Earlier this year, Duhamel released his much anticipated feature documentary, The Forgiveness Journey, which looks at the process of forgiveness through religious and spiritual leader perspectives and personal stories including his own struggle in rebuilding a relationship with his teenage daughter, Maddie. “With the film, Life Under The Horseshoe, we tone down the emotion a little and just have fun. I started my career in Idaho as a radio disc jockey so when I heard of Spring City’s stage radio show, I knew I wanted to do a story on it.”, Duhamel states.
The film was officially released on November 21st to an excited Spring City, Utah audience inside Victory Hall. With about one hundred people in attendance, the film premier event also featured live music from Mark and Vicki Allen and local bluegrass bands. Metamora Films hopes the attention the film is receiving especially from KJZZ-TV, helps to syndicate the stage radio show for a broader, national audience similar to NPR’s, Prairie Home Companion.
