Local filmmaker Lisle Hebert’s new film, “Little Red Book” will be make its public premiere on Saturday, March, 24 at the Gold Town Nickelodeon, with shows continuing through Sunday, April 1.
The film was shot in Juneau and features a local cast including Ed Christian, Fred Weiler, Holly Cockerille, Brett Dillingham, Doniece Gott, Eddie Jones, Roald Simonson, Erika O’Sullivan, Dawson Walker, Elizabeth Lebert and many others. A comedy, it tells the story of Amos Borgmier, a romantic baker who works in a supermarket with his friend Butch. After giving Butch an idealistic talk about the wonders of marriage, Amos goes home to find his wife, Beulah, has left him. Devastated, Amos goes out for a drink with Butch and another coworker, Gerald the green grocer, who attempt to console Amos by telling him that after Beulah discovers how bad things are in the “real” world, she will return to him on her hands and knees. Amos then sets off on a comedic series of plans to get his wife back … but is she worth it?
Filmmaker Hebert founded the Gold Town Theatre after creating his film “Gold Town” in 1999. That film, which centered on the first decades of Juneau’s history, also involved local actors and a local setting.
