MANUFACTURED LUCK — a short film written and directed by Kevin Keck, an East Tennessee-based creative — sets out to “blend traditional Appalachian storytelling with film.” And in it, we’re introduced to a young girl, and her grandfather, who has an affinity for contests, church raffles, and all things sweepstakes.
According to Kevin, we follow the exploits of “two introverts from vastly different generations trying to bond.” And the two eventually align when grandad decides to make it his mission to win the kid the bicycle of her dreams. It offers an emotional and inspirational message (about love and family).
And I’m pleased to announce that this compelling film has been selected to screen at the 19th annual KNOXVILLE FILM FESTIVAL, which is being held in-person at the Regal Downtown West Cinema 8, September 16-18, 2022.
