The Davidson Film Club Presents Shea Sizemore in its Local Filmmakers Showcase
Over the years, the Davidson Film Club has featured Local Filmmakers Showcases for our audiences to meet area filmmakers, including students, and discuss their films with them. We have had Showcases with students from Davidson, UNC-Charlotte, Wake Forest, and the NC School of the Arts.
A Showcase back in the summer of 2017 featured Shea Sizemore, a prominent Charlotte-area filmmaker, who screened for us a Western feature film titled County Line (2017, 1h29) that can be streamed for free by subscribers to Prime Video and rented on Vudu.
Shea has since written and directed a new feature film titled Bygone Billy (2019, 1h26). It was originally scheduled to be screened at the Davidson Film Club in Spring 2020, but we all know what happened then.
The film is about Billy, a troubled ex-cop, who is working to rebuild a failing bi-racial marriage. Then his wife bumps into his ex-wife and invites her and her husband over for dinner, revealing additional aspects of Billy’s past that deeply perturb his wife. Are they going to make it through this?
On Saturday, May 13, at 7:00 p.m. at the Armour Street Theatre, Shea will present and discuss this film with us, after we watch and discuss a “hors-d’œuvre,” a very recent short film by Shea titled “Zaldar” (2022, 18 min.) about a young autistic man who is chasing his dream of being a video game designer.
As always, any events added to our regularly scheduled film series are free to members and a modest $6 for walk-ins. Walk-ins are welcome to request seats at [email protected]!
