Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The film “Superior” is being shown tonight at the VISTA Theater in Negaunee, tomorrow at Northern Michigan University in Marquette and also has a Copper Country showing this Thursday night at Michigan Tech in Houghton.
The film’s writer/director Edd Benda checked in with the SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to talk about the film and what it was like shooting on location in the Upper Peninsula.
Benda explained that the film is set in the summer of 1969 and tells the story of two 18-year-old boys with very different futures ahead of them who go on a 1,300-mile adventure around Lake Superior.
He said the movie was inspired by stories told to him by family members and carries a universal message of adventure and self-exploration.

Tuesday, October 13th at 7:30 p.m. at the VISTA Theater in Negaunee
Wednesday, October 14th at 8:30 p.m. at 1100 Jamrich Hall at Northern Michigan University in Marquette

Benda will be in attendance for the shows as well as take part in a Q&A session immediately following each showing.
