The Ends of the Earth, a futuristic indie feature written, directed, shot and edited by Seattle filmmaker Rustin Thompson will be broadcast on UWTV this Saturday at 9:00 pm as part of the station’s newly-launched series, Backstory: The Filmmaker’s Vision. Produced in partnership with SIFF, Backstory takes a “behind the lens” look at the independent works of University of Washington-affiliated filmmakers, cast and crew. Show host and UW Drama Professor Andrew Tsao meditates interviews with the featured filmmakers before screening their films and shorts uncut and uninterrupted. Other locally-connected films slated for the program include A Relative Thing (written by local scribe Steve Edmiston); Senior Prom (directed and edited by Nick Terry and starring Jessica Weight); as well as Lynn Shelton’s first feature We Go Way Back. The film is also available on the Seattle-based distribution site, Indieflix. Check out the above link for additional information and program schedules.
