The feature film “The Line” has begun production in Las Cruces, New Mexico Film Office (NMFO) Director Amber Dodson said in a news release.
“We are thrilled to welcome ‘The Line’ to Las Cruces,” Las Cruces interim Film Liaison Andrew Jara said. “In addition to showcasing our unique locations and talented crew, the film is providing some great opportunities for students to gain invaluable experience.”
The film is a story about Emily, a young filmmaker who sets out to shoot a documentary about reuniting with her estranged mother of 14 years. When her mother vanishes, Emily’s project explodes from an intimate exploration of family into something much more sinister.
"The Line” is produced by Gary Lucchesi (“Million Dollar Baby”), Aaron Kogan (“5 Doctors”), Steven Klein (Emmy-nominated “Wrestle”), and Michael McKay (“The Age of Adaline”), and Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker, Pedro Kos (“Lead Me Home”), is set to direct, NMFO said.
"I fell in love with Las Cruces and have been so inspired by this area that it's becoming its own character in our film, as we are rooting our story in the local community,” Kos stated.
The production is employing more than 60 New Mexicans, NMFO said, including approximately 25 background talent, 28 resident crew members and eight actors.
