Westport Museum Featured In Local Film "Adira"

After shooting a teaser trailer at the 1855 Harris-Kearney House Museum in early June, Hidden District Studios has returned to the museum to film the rest of their WW2 movie titled “Adira.” The film, which stars Andrea Fantauzzi as Adira, is being shot entirely in Missouri, with a local cast and crew.

Out of 1.6 million Jewish children living in Europe at the start of WWII, only 11% survived. During the holocaust, Adira, a young Jewish girl, flees from the grasp of the Gestapo and finds herself stranded on an abandoned farm. She has to learn to survive with only her faith and basic instincts to keep her alive. With this fictional story, Hidden District Studios pays tribute to those souls affected by the Holocaust and explores the power that faith and family has in our lives.

The film will be released in the fall/winter season of 2013. A premier date and location will be announced soon. The trailer can be viewed at the Hidden District Studios website: www.hiddendistrictstudios.com
