SUNY Canton Screens Local Movie “Dissection of an Olive” on March 27
The showing will be free and open to the public and will be the first time the movie has been shown locally since it played at the Roxy Theater in Potsdam as part of the Cinema 10 series last fall.
Several SUNY Canton students and faculty members contributed their talents to the movie, which was written and directed by former Potsdam resident Summer Dorr.
Kamal A. Turner, an instructional support assistant in the College’s Graphic and Multimedia Design program served as the assistant director and acted in the evolving story.
“I saw my parts in the movie as a way to be involved with a really large creative project right here in the North Country,” Turner said. “I contacted all of the students I knew who were interested in making movies so they could take advantage of the opportunity to get hands-on experience in a real production.”
Additionally, Jesse L. Clark-Stone, a mathematics faculty member, served as the executive producer for the production. Graphic and Multimedia Design students Daniel H. Grant of Miller Place and Towfiq Akhtar of Queens both played roles in making the movie.
