The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to partner with Theatrikos Theatre Company to bring movies to Downtown Flagstaff!

This series continues on Wednesday, Sept. 6 with the Flagstaff premiere of “Mending the Line” at 7:00 p.m. at Theatrikos Theatre Company.

“Mending the Line” features an all-star ensemble cast, including Brian Cox, Sinqua Walls, Perry Mattfeld and Chris Galust, with Patricia Heaton and Wes Studi.

For some, the path starts on the river. “Mending the Line” is a story about finding something to make living worthwhile.

John Colter, a wounded veteran, returns to the States still carrying the demons of war, hauntingly disturbed by the everyday expectations of friendships and love interests. In Livingston, Montana, he meets Ike, a surly, headstrong fly-fisherman more than twice his age, and Lucy, a talented photographer turned librarian who reads aloud to veterans, both damaged in their own way.

While getting treatment for his wounds, both physical and psychological, Colter wants only to re-enlist, to have something to die for. But the real challenge is finding something to live for.

“Emotionally honest … deserves a wide audience. A thoughtful look at how we heal.” — Film Authority
