Angel’s Perch, a film by J. T. Arbogast, will have an encore screening Thursday, November 16, at 7 p.m. at the Pocahontas County Opera House. Admission fee is $5.
Angel’s Perch is the story of Jack, a successful young architect living in Pittsburgh, who must make the trip to his tiny West Virginia hometown to move his grandmother into an assisted-care facility after she is found wandering outside her home. But what was intended to be a two day, under-the-radar trip becomes more complicated when Jack is unable to move her into a facility nearby.
Torn between the career opportunity of a lifetime, caring for his last living relative and running from his own painful memories, Jack is forced to choose between standing still or facing the pain of his past, so that he can finally move forward.
Filmed almost entirely in Cass and featuring local talent, Angel’s Perch examines the delicate relationship between past and present, memory and loss.
“We’re so excited to have the opportunity to bring Angel’s Perch back to the Opera House,” Arbogast said. “Coming home to make this film was such an incredibly special experience, not only because we were able to showcase what makes this place so special, but also because of the outpouring of support that we received and the incredible lasting friendships that have resulted from this project.”
