The Indie Film Corner: ‘Canopy’

in Arts by

The USCB Center for the Arts presents the film “Canopy” on Monday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m.

Directed by Aaron Wilson, this English film is set in Singapore, February 9, 1942. The Japanese invasion is under way. Jim (Khan Chittenden), an Australian fighter pilot, wakes up dangling from a tree by his parachute strings somewhere in the middle of a vast jungle overrun by hostile forces. As night devours day, he forges into the danger he must navigate in search of sanctuary when he encounters a Singapore-Chinese resistance fighter, Seng (Mo Tzu-Yi), who, injured and frightened, also seeks to survive their tenuous surroundings and common enemy. The men realize that their only hope of persevering lies with each other as their journey begins the exploration of the collision of war, nature and its impact on humanity.

Tickets are $7 for adults, $6 seniors, and $7 for students. The Center for the Arts is located at 801 Carteret Street, Beaufort, SC, 29902. Contact the box office at 843-521-4145 or email bhargrov@uscb.edu or visit www.uscbcenterforthearts.com.
