The script for Duplex was a finalist at the 2012 Steeltown Film Factory, a filmmaking competition created to encourage and nurture the growth of the entertainment sector of Southwestern Pennsylvania. On Jan. 16th, the work will premiere at Pittsburgh Filmmakers as part of an event showcasing locally made short films.
Directed by Rasul Welch, and co-written by Nathanial Hollabaugh, Christy Leonardo, and Stephen Knezovich, Duplex follows a girl named Kara as she stalks a young couple, slowly insinuating herself into their lives until, finally, she’s occupying the empty unit in the couple’s duplex. But when Kara doesn’t get what she wants, she takes her obsession to a violent and terrifying conclusion. See a teaser clip for the film at Vimeo.
Duplex will be shown as part of a program of shorts by local filmmakers. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with films starting at 8:00 p.m.
