Double Feature: Lost on Purpose & Small Town Crime
LOST ON PURPOSE was filmed in TULARE COUNTY, where sibling writers/directors Eshom Nelms and Ian Nelms grew up. Upon the film’s release in 2013, it won several U.S. film festival awards including Best Film, Best Directors, and Best Actress. LOST ON PURPOSE was a love letter to their hometown and there’s no doubt you’ll recognize and enjoy some of the very same places.

Synopsis: Fueled by gin and pure determination, Elizabeth James (Ms. Liz) struggles to keep her dairy farm from being swallowed up by the regions domineering co-op. To help with the workload, she's hired five renegade ranch hands. Together they fight for love, pride, family, and their vanishing way of life. (Please Note: There is profanity in this film.)

SMALL TOWN CRIME stars an award-winning cast and received rave reviews from top critics at the New York Times, LA Times, and The Hollywood Reporter among many others upon its nationwide release in January 2018.

This special event marks the first time that SMALL TOWN CRIME will play in Tulare County.

Synopsis: Ex-cop Mike Kendall (John Hawkes) discovers the body of a young woman and, in an act of self- redemption, becomes hell bent on finding the killer. While his un-couth and quirky detective style helps break open the case, his dogged determination unwittingly puts his sister (Octavia Spencer) and best friend (Anthony Anderson) in danger. (Please Note: This film is rated R for strong violence, language and some sexual references.)
