Fluid Film is pleased to announce the Orange County Premiere of “The Story of Luke”, an award-winning film written and directed by Alonso Mayo and starring Lou Taylor Pucci, Seth Green, Cary Elwes and Kristin Bauer, at the Irvine International Film Festival on Sunday, January 20th at 6:30pm (Edwards Westpark 8 in Irvine). There will be a Q&A after the screening with the filmmakers.
“The Story of Luke” is a light-hearted comedy/drama about Luke, a young man with autism who, after being sheltered his whole life, embarks on a quest for a job and a girlfriend. The film is Alonso Mayo’s feature directorial debut and is partly based on his experience in the Centro Ann Sullivan del Peru, a school and research center for people with autism and other developmental disabilities in Lima, Peru, as chronicled in Mayo’s documentary “Just Like Anyone”.
“The Story of Luke” had its World Premiere at the San Diego Film Festival, where it won the prize for Best Film. It has won Audience Awards from the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival and the Bahamas Film Festival.
