UNC Asheville students in mass communication and drama will screen the original film, Mountebank, which was written, directed and produced by UNC Asheville students, alumni and faculty, at 10 p.m. on Thursday, May 11 at Asheville Pizza and Brewing on Merrimon Ave. The screening is free and open to the public.

Mountebank tells the story of two con-artist brothers who work as grifters to support their family. The screenplay was written by UNC Asheville alumnus Clint Owens, and directed by Anne Slatton, lecturer in mass communication. Mountebank was filmed with cooperation from the Screen Actors Talent Casting Agency and numerous Asheville businesses that provided shooting locations, including Habitat Brewing Company, Mike’s Auto Service, Barley’s Taproom and Pizzeria, and many others.

Mountebank continues some mature language and violence, and may not be appropriate for young children. For more information, contact Slatton at aslatton@unca.edu.
