The sci-fi thriller 2052: The Truck Driver kicks off the Wellington Film Festival on Saturday, Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m. The premiere will be shown at the Movies at Wellington.
This is the 41st movie by local filmmaker Gary Davis. This latest post-apocalyptic production makes him America’s No. 1 “Z Movie” producer.
The tale features Nicolas Guidazo, a resident of Miami who is from Argentina, along with Ron Rafael Shimshilashvili, an Israeli-born actor. The two of them are a deadly force to be reckoned with as they leave a path of death and destruction in this prequel to 2054: A Princess, a Soldier and a Tailor, starring Hong Kong’s Chui Chi Ling.
2052 The Truck Driver takes place in the post-apocalyptic world of 2052, when Doctor C, played by Courtney Miller of Delray Beach, tries to control the balance of power by creating super soldiers. The excitement begins as she is kidnapped by Ivan and Nicolas, General Lee’s men. Davis film aficionados will remember General Lee, a character who was played by the late Borketey “BeeOne” Boyefio. Lee’s men strap an ankle-bracelet bomb to the doctor’s leg, forcing her to drive Lee’s truck during the storm of the century.
All the scenes in the movie were shot in Palm Beach County with one exception, the climactic underwater sequence, which was shot off the coast of Port St. Lucie by underwater videographer Jason Meert.
Berto’s Bait & Tackle along with Taxman America, both in West Palm Beach, provided locations for the production and the huge military vehicles seen in the movie.
Resonate Happiness of West Palm Beach will host the world premiere and red carpet event on Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m. at the Movies at Wellington.
After the premiere the movie will be available at www.vimeo.com/ondemand/chocolatestar.
