“How the Fire Fell”
Inspired by true events, the drama follows self-proclaimed prophet Edmund Creffield as he gathers a flock of dedicated followers dubbed the ‘Brides of Christ’ in 1903 Oregon. As rumors surface of perverse goings-on inside the mysterious cult, angry families seek revenge.
Written and directed by Portland-based Edward P. Davee, the 91-minute feature stars Joe Haege, David Poland, Maren McGuire, Brighid Thomas, and Rachael Perrell, with cinematography by Scott Ballard. It was filmed in Corvallis, Hood River and Portland.
“How the Fire Fell” was an official selection of the 2011 Nashville Film Festival and the 2011 Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival.
