Split Pillow Showcase - Petersburg
Select Cast and Crew in Person at Each Screening!
Petersburg (2007, 75 mins., video) directed by Dave Belden, Tom Herman, Nick
Martin, and Jim Vendiola. A political suspense drama based on Andrei Bely's
classic novel opens Split Pillow's 6th season of new works by Chicago-based
filmmakers.  Nick Petersburg returns to an unfamiliar home in Chicago after
being away at college to find his parents separated and his father, Illinois
Senator Apollon Petersburg, preparing to run for higher office.  When Nick's
childhood friends re-insert themselves into his life, he finds himself torn
between the counter-culture leanings of peer Alex and the serve and protect
beliefs of older-brother figure Sergei.  When Alex gives Nick a package from
the mysterious Lipo for safekeeping, Nick begins to believe he may be the
not-so-unwitting pawn in a potentially revolutionary plot. Featuring Peter
Calandra, Tony DiGanci, Jason Frederick, Nina Fultz, Ross Heran, Adam Ruben,
and Rachel Slavick.
