PRLog - Jun. 2, 2011 - MONTEREY, Calif. -- Timely in view of apocalyptic soothsayer Harold Camping’s spectacular mis-prediction of a rapture event at 6pm on May 21, 2011, this unusual film about our uncertain times examines the potential dangers of foreseeing the End Of The World by charismatic personalities.
“APOCALYPSE (According to Doris)” was recently reviewed in indieWIRE, the online independent film daily by Sydney Levine, a well-known quantity in the international film scene where she comments: "Both funny and emotional, it deals with the paranormal, and conscious awakening, challenging us about who we are, how we act, and the meaning of existence."
Celebrating the screening on Saturday, June 25th is a reunion of the filmmakers joining Writer/Director Goss including the male lead Jaime Gomez, known for his starring role in the long running series NASH BRIDGES and recent appearances in the current TV hit “24.” Joining them is Elise Robertson who stars in the title role of Doris, a familiar face from multiple guest appearances on GREY’S ANATOMY, SIX FEET UNDER, and THE GILMORE GIRLS, along with another Nash Bridges veteran, Christian Meoli (ALIVE, DOGTOWN, BONGWATER, EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS), and Brynn Horrocks from MAD MEN and CRIMINAL MINDS.
An awards ceremony and gala party where the public is invited to meet and network with the filmmakers and other Hollywood professionals will follow the screening.
“APOCALYPSE (According to Doris)” recently screened at the Cannes Marche du Film and has now just begun an international festival campaign and tour, and was recently nominated as BEST FEATURE May 2011 at the Spirit Quest Film Festival in Edinburg, PA.
Goss contends, "Everything you've heard about the so-called apocalypse" is WRONG, ...and after listening to all this catastrophobic fear mongering about end-times online and in other media, it's time for us to take a realistic view of this transformational epoch we're living through - not only globally, politically, ethically, and spiritually, but to reflect on what it might mean to us personally."
The Akasha Metaphysical Film Festival will take place June 24th through June 26th, 2011 at the Sunset Community Center located at San Carlos Street at 9th Avenue in downtown Carmel-By-The-
