Geekadelphia first wrote about Amy Frear’s short film “Another Time” back in 2014. Since then, the film has been shown at various film festivals, including winning Audience Favorite and Curator’s Awards.
Now, Frear is currently working on producing “Ways to Look at the Moon,” which will be directed by Philly filmmaker Katherine Clark. Frear will also be playing the lead in the film alongside fellow Philly filmmaker and artist Catalina Jordan Alvarez.
The film is based on a short story by Clark.
I recently moved to Philadelphia, and immediately realized how much the city has to offer. There’s a lot of stories that are waiting to be told here,” Clark said in a press release. “So with the help of my producer, Amy Frear, I adapted it into a piece set in Philadelphia, using local talent.
So exciting! If Ways to Look at the Moon is similar to Another time, then we’re definitely in for a treat.
Ways to Look at the Moon follows Margot, a painter, and her strained relationship with an astronomer named Stephen. It seems like they are always on a different page, trying to reach each other in the only ways that they know how. It wasn’t always that way, though.
Margot begins to paint stars and create constellations on the ceiling, hoping to find a way to reach him and re-connect through her work. But as their home and relationship become more and more claustrophobic, she begins to wonder if her mission is even possible.
Meanwhile, as she explores Philadelphia, Margot encounters a musician named Jamie. How hard will Margot push to make others see things from her point of view before surrendering to the beauty of a thousand ways to look at something?
