Insight into Cleveland Film Society
Mark Wheatley informs us that the film Hero Tomorrow, playing at the Cleveland Film Society, features "many of the Insight Studios comic books — with Radical Dreamer and Frankenstein Mobster being front and center. In fact Frankie comic book collecting is a plot point! And the love scene in the comic book store takes place in front of a Radical Dreamer stained glass style window. Really a very nice film, pro quality and a lot of heart."
Hero Tomorrow is described as "a tragically hip look at the Cleveland comic scene as viewed through the lens of local indie filmmaker Ted Sikora. David is a young man with Rasta dreadlocks and nothing on his mind but Apama, his comic book creation. Unable to sell his stuff, David has to resort to mowing lawns. His relationship with gothically fashionable Robyn, an aspiring designer with a real job — working at the comic store — is on the skids. When even his friend Greg, off whom he’s been sponging for awhile, kicks him out, David reaches his darkest hour. It’s then that his character Apama takes over, avenging the helpless and weak of Cleveland’s suburban jungles."
The film is set to premiere March 17 and 18 at the festival.
