Fort Apache (2013) - Dreamer Escapes From A Small Town Life

Fort Apache (2013) - Based on the Award Winning Story, Fort Apache follows a precocious young boy as he struggles to escape small town life. On the eve of his eleventh birthday he must choose between leaving home or following his brother down a path of violence and destruction in this coming of age story. Addison Mehr is known for his work on Hugo (2011), George Harrison: Living in the Material World (2011) and Fort Apache (2013). It was based on a short story that I read in Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope magazine. I got in touch with the author Alan Heathcock and it turned out he was a big movie fan. I grew up in rural small town America, so I wanted to do a story set in small town America, and to me this story resonated. When I got in touch with Alan we found we had a lot of similar visual references and film references for how we pictured the story, like Ivan's Childhood and Rumble Fish. - Addison Mehr Directed by Addison Mehr. Starring: Josh Salatin, Lindsay Burdge, Hale Lytle, Shirley Temple
