Two of Waterbury native sons will bring their film to the silver screen at Creative Cinemas 10, 117 Sharon Road, in Waterbury on Thursday, January 3, at 6 and 8pm."We've both shared a passion for filmmaking from a young age," Says Joe Pisani, who partnered with his friend, Frank Wihbey, to co-produce the film, and co-write the screenplay with another Waterbury native, Pedro Ondrush. "We were both working on our own short films and other projects at the time, and one day we ran into each other. Frank pitched the story to me, and I instantly knew I wanted to be involved. Now here we are three years later, booking venues for the premiere and after-party."
