Meet for a screening Q&A with Tim and Holly Erskine, the Ellison Bay couple who created the first sci-fi epic adventure film shot entirely in Door County with a cast of local actors, at the next Greens N Grains Dinner and a Movie on March 8.
When a lone space traveler named Koyper (Peter Ciesla) lands his rocket ship in Newport State Park, only to be witnessed by three Door County locals out on a sunset meditation walk, a life-saving and heartwarming adventure begins in The Emissary. Since its release in 2015, the film has been loved by audiences near and far, perhaps because of its underlying philosophy of mindfulness.
“You live in a magical place on a magical world – never forget that,” Koyper explains to the Earthlings. “Being mindful of your moments is the greatest gift you can give yourself.”
The Emissary is described as a comical, science fiction adventure but it’s also a love story – a love of science, astronomy and each other. Tim and Holly Erskine, Kay Allmand, Peter Ciesla, Edward DiMaio, Paul Erskine, Jess Holland, Joel Kersebet, Mark Moede, Patrick Palmer and John Wilson are some of the local actors in the movie.
After the screening, Tim and Holly may speak about their passion for the International Dark Sky Association, a campaign to reduce light pollution, especially relevant to Door County.
