The film crew which has been headquartered in West Plains for more than a month now has finished its work and is headed home. Their movie, Tatterdemallion, is in the post-production phase and will be getting ready for presentation at film festivals and general release over the next several months.
Tatterdemallion is the story of a young woman, Fern Sreaves, returning to the Ozarks following service in the Middle East with the U.S. military. Fern's father has just died, and she is busy establishing herself in his residence when she encounters a little boy living alone in the woods. The movie focuses on Fern trying to bring some sense to her situation as well as to that of the boy. It is a very poignant story.
Ramaa Mosley was the director of this film, and the principal screenwriter was Tim Macy. The pair worked together previously on the movie, The Brass Teapot, with was featured on Showtime and Netflix, and shown in theaters.
This film production was a mini-economic boon to the Ozarks, bringing employment to several local individuals including some who will be featured in significant roles in the movie. It also brought in people from outside of the area who spent money and helped spur on the local economy while they were here.
Congratulations to the cast and crew of Tatterdemallion. Thank you for choosing to come to the Ozarks to create your cinematic vision!
