INTERNATIONAL FALLS is a dark comedy about two people who have to fight to keep the funny alive. Set in International Falls, MN, the self-proclaimed "ice box of the nation," INTERNATIONAL FALLS follows an aspiring comic through the collapse of her marriage and a one night stand with a dead beat comic at the end of his road. The film is a meditation on the deeply comedic and profoundly sad as they sit side by side in life. As the character Tim says, "If you wanna tell jokes for a living, tell the truth."
MISSY is a short film that was created as a teaser for the feature by the same name. Written by and starring Alison Mauldin, the film was directed by Amber McGinnis for Commonwealth Studios.
