Brave the Dark
Based on a true story, Brave the Dark powerfully portrays the transformation of a 1980s small-town teacher as he is drawn into the mysterious past of a student suddenly arrested outside his classroom. Long sustained by a quiet belief that no student is a lost cause, Stan Deen (Jared Harris (Chernobyl, Mad Men)) discovers the profound and direct impact he can have on another life. But as Stan attempts to figure out how troubled, secretive Nate (Nicholas Hamilton (Captain Fantastic, It)) wound up living alone in his car, without any family, their relationship will test his deepest convictions and become a life-changing journey through doubt and betrayal towards trust and redemption.
Director Damian Harris, and actors Jared Harris and Jamie Harris (sons of renowned actor Richard Harris) and Nathaniel Deen (on whom the film is based) will be in attendance.
