To Rest in Peace is starting 2012 at the Irvine International Film Festival! The festival runs January 12-16, and our screening is on Saturday, January 14, at 12:30PM.
We shot most of the film at an abandoned air field near Irvine. That's where we staged the car with two dead bodies, which is the story's center of gravity. It took months of location scouting, all over Southern California, to finally find a place that could double for Kuwait. And if you look at the picture above of the festival venue, it looks so much like a Kuwaiti mall!
We're looking forward to going back to Irvine for the film festival.
