A Genesis Found : The Film Companion

A Genesis Found : The Film Companion


A Genesis Found: The Film Companion is the literary counterpart of the 2010 DIY Independent Feature Film, A Genesis Found, which is currently touring the Southeast! Featuring the film's shooting screenplay, an anecdotal essay, an interview with the film's producers, and a full length novelization of the film's story (by mystery writer Wilson Toney), this companion digs deeper into the world of A Genesis Found, and highlights the unique grassroots approach behind its production and distribution. In 1938, CCC cadet John Patton Jr. found the key to our darkest secret-an anomalous skeleton neither animal nor man. Uncertain of its implications, Patton hid the discovery away from the world-though never forgetting what he found. Seventy years later, his grandson Gardner is forced to come to terms with his grandfather's past, a man he never knew but in whose footsteps he inevitably follows. When his cousin, controversial documentarian Bart Thompson, arrives for a seemingly routine shoot, Gardner is eager to lend a hand. He soon learns, however, that Bart isn't back just to shoot a movie-he wants to find the "discovery" their grandfather buried nearly seventy years before, and prove what he claimed was true. As his skepticism fades, and the lure of mystery grows, Gardner becomes distant from his foundations, including his live-in girlfriend Kelsey. Losing himself to the adventure, Gardner is hypnotized by a single possibility-that this "discovery" could be a direct link to God. Split into separate halves, A Genesis Found: The Film Companion is really two books in one-- A Genesis Found: The Novelization, and Buried in the Mounds. The two halves, together in vintage flip-book fashion, combine for a complete, unique package commemorating the DIY ethos, and the clandestine revelations of A Genesis Found!
