For Immediate Release

PORTLAND, Ore./EWORLDWIRE/Sep. 30, 2009 --- A complex thriller attracting attention at film festivals around the country was produced by independent filmmaker and instructor Greg Kerr ('http://www.gregkerr.net'), who used his own money to produce the multiple award-winning piece.

Entitled, "Unremembered ('http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LJywjOwU5k')," the film recently won Awards of Merit in three categories at the international awards competition for independent films, The Indie Fest, in La Jolla, Calif. This includes Indie Fest award winner, feature film.

Since the film's release early this summer, it has become an official selection at the Eugene International Film Festival in Eugene, Ore.; the New Jersey Film Festival at Rutger's University in New Brunswick, N.J., and won Best Narrative Feature at the Great Lakes Independent Film Festival in Pennsylvania.


The film will show in Eugene on Saturday, Oct. 10, 2009, 11:00 p.m., at Regal Cinemas Valley River Center Stadium 15. On hand will be Kerr, along with Karla Mason ('http://www.karlamason.com') who plays the character of Tina Plantes in the film, and original score composer Nan Avant ('http://www.nanavant.com').


The public is invited to attend a free screening of Unremembered at Living Room Theaters, 341 SW 10th Avenue, downtown Portland, Oct. 20, 2009, at 7:00 p.m. Kerr will be available to talk about the film. To reserve, go to 'http://www.gregkerr.net/contact'.


A modern interpretation of the ancient Greek epic, The Odyssey, Unremembered is a story told in non-linear time about a man who has no past. In the style of films like Memento and Jacob's Ladder but with a unique science fiction twist, this film follows the alternate reality journey of John Outis over 16 days as he tries to restore his fractured life history - but the more his dark past comes into focus, the more the lives of his friends, his wife, and his lover are altered.

As Outis' past threatens to end his future, he turns to Tina Plantes, a brilliant and unconventional physics professor. Drawn deeper into the bizarre events of John's life, she discovers a disturbing and far-reaching set of truths about dreams, time, and the power of the human will.

Kerr, who was born and raised in Southern Oregon and now calls Portland home, is amazed by the positive reaction to the film. "Although I wrote the screenplay five years ago, it feels much more poignant right now," Kerr
said. "I think if you consider the film in that context, about a person who has lost complete control of his life due to circumstances seemingly beyond his control, you're sure to find parallels with our everyday lives."

Unremembered was edited and completed at Kerr's North Portland residence. "You just never know what might be going on in North Portland," said Kerr. "With the amazing wealth of talent in this city, I wouldn't be suprised if an Oscar winner eventually pops up from some quiet, Oregon neighborhood."

"I paid about $30,000 to make 'Unremembered'," Kerr said, "and I used all my savings and then maxed out a few credit cards to pay for it which will come as no surprise to most indie filmmakers. This is really the mark of a
true independent film. The total was a fraction of what a comparable Hollywood film would cost."

Kerr also wrote the screenplay which earned an Indie Fest award for original screenplay. The movie features Oregon talent Tim Delaney (Indie Fest award winner, lead actor) as John Outis and Mason (a veteran performer
in Portland theater) as Tina Plantes, with original music by Seattle composer Nan Avant. All of the film's cast and crew are from the Pacific Northwest and the scenes filmed in Portland are very recognizable. Other
scenes were filmed on the Oregon coast and the Deschutes River near Bend.

Unremembered has not been rated by the Motion Picture Association of America. The film contains adult language, violence, adult situations, and complex ideas.

Kerr is in the early stages of his next film project, an action-oriented, darkly comic thriller that takes place in Portland. His plan is to begin production in summer 2010.
