Reparation a "Must-See" at This Week's Indy Film Fest
July 11, 2016
Reparation is listed among '10 must-see movies and events' at Indy Film Fest in an Indianapolis Star article. Danielle Grady writes, "This film, set and shot in Indiana and directed by Kyle Ham, a graduate of DePauw University in Greencastle, has won a slew of audience choice and acting awards since it began its journey on the film festival circuit."
Gray notes, "In the movie, Bob Stevens (Marc Menchaca) is a veteran and farmer who can’t remember three years of his life. A stranger named Jerome (Jon Huertas) shows up to Bob’s house, claiming he knew Bob in the Air Force police. Meanwhile, clues to Bob’s foggy past are appearing in his 8-year-old daughter, Charlotte’s (Dale Dye Thomas), art work."
The piece opens by stating, "The 13th annual Indy Film Fest, running from July 14 to July 24 at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, will include around 100 films -- a modest number when compared with the nearly 800 submissions the festival received."
Kyle Ham is a 1994 DePauw graduate. The screenplay for Reparation -- filmed entirely in Putnam County -- was adapted from a play by professor of communication and theatre Steve Timm. It won the Best Film Award at 2015 Santa Fe Film Festival.
The film also took honors for Audience Choice for Best Feature Drama at the Sedona International Film Festival; Best Screenplay, Breckenridge Film Festival; Audience Award Winner, Austin Film Festival; and Best Narrative Feature at both the River's Edge International Film Festival and the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival.
An Indianapolis television station covered the making of the film in the summer of 2014. A segment is embedded below.
