POCAHONTAS COUNTY - A film shot in Pocahontas County has been picked up for national distribution since its release.
Angel's Perch; a movie based out of West Virginia, has been distributed nationally by Gravitas Ventures for a cable release date on December 1st. The story is based around a young man who must return home to West Virginia to care for his grandmother who suffers from Altzheimers disease. The heart-warming story also stars local West Virginia actors and harps on the beautiful scenery and wonderful community.
"I had always obviously known that it would make a beautiful backdrop for a film. It deserved to be up on a big screen... but the other side of that for me is I wanted to tell a story that I thought celebrated the community that exists in West Virginia that doesn't necessarily get the the love it deserves. We know them as hard-working and loving people who take care of eachother," said writer and producer J.T Arbogast.
