Fargo-Moorhead feature film Supermoto, starring Concordia alum and faculty, will be world premiered at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival on April 15 and 16 at St. Anthony Main Theatre.
Supermoto follows the story of Ruby, a woman who wakes up alone in a motel room. Her abusive boyfriend has left her, leaving her with a toothbrush, racing leathers and a supermoto bicycle. Sick of heartbreak, clichés and violent men, Ruby sets off for a new adventure.
Matthew Meyers is the producer of the film. He moved to Fargo-Moorhead to follow his wife, Dr. Jacqueline Bussie, religion professor, who obtained a position as Director of the Forum on Faith and Life at Concordia College. Since he moved to the area, he has always wanted to make a film in the area.
Dr. David Wintersteen, CSTA professor and director of theatre, plays the character Reggie Pink and is the co-casting director along with his wife, Carolyn Wintersteen. Dr. Christian Boy, theatre professor, is the production designer. Amber Morgan, 2015 graduate, plays the character Bug Bird.
