Waldoboro native Lucas McNelly, decided to embark on a Twitter-based challenge to make a feature-length film in just two weeks....He never imagined his film would be in a multiplex, along side "Iron Man 2."

When a small group of Pittsburgh filmmakers, led by Waldoboro native Lucas McNelly, decided to embark on a Twitter-based challenge to make a feature-length film in just two weeks, they never imagined that one year later the result of their labor would be screening in a multiplex alongside the likes of "Iron Man 2" and "Robin Hood".

But on May 14th, "Blanc de Blanc" will start a one week engagement at the Flagship Cinemas in Thomaston, Maine.

"Blanc de Blanc" -- a jigsaw puzzle of a film that has confounded and delighted audiences around the world -- is the story of David (Jason Kirsch), a man who comes to Pittsburgh with nothing more than the contents of his backpack and falls in love with a benevolent nurse (Rachel Shaw) whom he meets on the street -- only there are elements of his past that aren't quite done with him yet.

Reviews for "Blanc de Blanc" have been glowing. Michigan-based producer Tom Russell called it "a mystery with real staying power" that was "stylish, fun, mysterious -- and, above all, highly recommended." Cult movie icon Pericles Lewnes of the Annapolis Pretentious Film Society said the film "transcends genre labels and elbows it's way into a rarefied class of Indie Film that is pleasantly thought provoking and meticulously hand made for a smart audience by a brilliantly talented director."

Director Lucas McNelly, who was born and raised in nearby Waldoboro, Maine and is a 1997 graduate of Coastal Christian High School in Nobleboro, will be in town to meet with audiences and answer questions.
