‘Northstar’ film director to speak at GFWC meeting

IRON MOUNTAIN – General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) Sept. 5 meeting will be one of the most exciting meetings of the year and is being held at Pine Grove Country Club on Friday, Sept. 5 from noon to 2 p.m.

This will be an open meeting so guests: friends and husbands welcome. Board members will be dressed as movie stars. “Come and see who you recognize,” said a spokesperson.

GFWC (Women’s Club) will feature at their first meeting of the 2014-15 year, the director of an upcoming movie being filmed in the Upper Peninsula. He will tell us all about this exciting movie event in our Upper Peninsula.

The movie is being directed by Seth and Nathan Anderson and produced by Jason Hagen. Seth and Nathan are brothers, grew up in Iron Mountain and have lived in Los Angeles for the past 10 years. They have been working steadily to bring a feature film project to the U.P. for the past three years, specifically in the Iron Mountain-Kingsford area. Their love of Upper Michigan’s natural beauty, along with a personal desire to contribute something worthwhile to the community they love has led them to make their first major film as professionals here in Michigan.

Although, they have produced two short movies they have always wanted to recognize the U.P. The feature film will be titled “Northstar” and will primarily be filmed during the winter months while snow is on the ground. Here is a brief overview of the film: “Northstar” follows a small family that has managed to eke out an existence in a cold and remote area after a mysterious illness has decimated the population and cut the survivors off from civilization. The plot thickens when it is revealed that the youngest member of this family may hold the key to saving the country. A struggle ensues when an outside force comes looking for the child, pitting the local community against a military force that may not have their best interests in mind. Although there is a lot of sci-fi action in this movie, when it comes down to it, “Northstar” is about family, loyalty and a father’s love for his child.

Reservations are essential for this meeting as theye will have limited seating. Luncheon cost to attend is $14 and will need to be made no later than Sept. 2.
