What started as a dream to make a movie set in and inspired by North Dakota has come to fruition in the form of NoDak Films debut feature length drama “Last Summer For Boys.”
Filmed at nearly 50 North Dakota locations as well as Minneapolis in the summer of 2010, NoDak Films not only brings the state of North Dakota into a theatrical drama, but also a cast of actors and crew that represent 17 North Dakota cities and towns.
Along with cast and crew, the film features North Dakota musicians in the soundtrack, North Dakota artists’ artwork, North Dakota businesses and individuals.
“Last Summer for Boys” tells the story of a young man named BeauDrey Treeland who decides at a young age he is not going to take over the family farm. He gets his degree and a suit and tie job in Minneapolis. Something happens to him and he ends up back on the farm.
The Grand Theatres and theater owner Jerry Brekke has agreed to release “Last Summer For Boys” theatrically as long as the movie can sustain itself.
The movie premieres at 7 p.m. Friday at the Grand Theatres in Bismarck followed by a short theatrical run at the theater.
NoDak Films founder and owner Nathan Anderson (a North Dakota native) has spent nearly seven years bringing this film to a theater with the goal of making more movies in and inspired by North Dakota.
