This Sunday July 31 at 8PM, CONQUERING THE ROSE, a feature-length independent drama will screen at the Cinema Arts Theatre in Fairfax. The film tells the story of how the death of Etta Callahan, a young dance student, affects the lives of those closest to her. CONQUERING THE ROSE is written and produced by local actress and filmmaker Jenna St. John, who adapted the screenplay from her novel. The film is directed by J. Michael Whalen, making his feature directorial debut. Award winning actor, George Katt, stars as Jeremiah Mouthy, an artist and teacher who becomes obsessed with Etta following her death.
Shot in locations from Alexandria to Baltimore, CONQUERING THE ROSE, employed cast and crew from D.C., Maryland, and Virginia, including yours truly. I play psychologist Blake Johnson in what is the biggest role of my acting career. So come out Sunday night to see me run the emotional triathlon. It’s just $6!
