With special guests! Michigan premiere. Alienated, sci-fi obsessed teen filmmaker Pat Johnson must overcome his fear of leaving everything he knows and loves behind to chase his dream. Despite a head full of film knowledge and an imagination exploding with impossible cinematic dreams, Pat is doubtful that anyone from his hometown of Wadsworth, Illinois (pop. 750) could ever make a mark in Hollywood. As he approaches high school graduation, he grows more and more resigned to a life of factory work. Disheartened by her son’s dejection, Pat’s mom cold calls the editor of American Cinematographer magazine in a desperate attempt to open a door of career possibilities. Based on the real-life experiences of director Patrick Read Johnson, 5-25-77 is sure to charm with the wide-eyed enthusiasm of lead actor John Francis Daley (Freaks and Geeks) and its sincere account of the heights to which dreams, passion and self-actualization can take you.
