Welling Films presents the World Premiere of the much anticipated Docu-drama, The Messenger: 360 Days of Bolivar at Houston's own Worldfest International Film Festival. The Messenger features a unique look into the lives of some of the saltiest characters one could ever find in Texas who live at what they call the end of the road. The film delves into the personal lives of the characters leading up to, and after the landfall of Hurricane Ike on Bolivar Peninsula on the southeastern coast of Texas.
Director Shawn Welling, 3-time Remi Award Winner, states, When we were first introduced to these individuals in their humble surroundings, we weren't sure whether to feel sorry for them... or for ourselves.
Cinematographer Roger Scott Budge adds that, The visuals and the dialogue captured here in Bolivar helped remind us of the spiritual concerns versus the material concerns of life
Associate Producer, Michael Berry states, These individuals are straight out of central casting and you couldn't hire an actor anywhere that can personify the wit and character of these real life individuals.
