CORVALLIS, Ore. – Two screenings of an American independent film will be shown in Corvallis on Sept. 28.

Must Come Down” is on a short Northwestern tour and will show at 7 and 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28, at the Darkside Cinema, 215 S.W. 4th St. The screenings are sponsored by Oregon State University’s School of Writing, Literature, and Film and are free and open to public.

Jon Lewis, film professor at OSU, will introduce the film and moderate a question-and-answer session with the director of “Must Come Down” following the screenings.

After premiering at Cinequest San Jose, “Must Come Down” went on to show at the Phoenix Film Festival, Newport Beach Film Festival, and Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival.

Written and directed by Kenny Riches, “Must Come Down” was shot on location in Salt Lake City. It was produced by actor Patrick Fugit (“Almost Famous,” “We Bought A Zoo”) and producer Dominic Fratto. It features actors and musical talent from the Salt Lake City area.

“Must Come Down” follows a quirky girl and guy trying to get through their early 20s. Holly and Ashley share misadventures as they stumble through life’s final bout of growing pains.

Film critic Ray Schillaci wrote that “Everything about this film echoes independent and cult, and it is a refreshing journey after so many studio driven rom-coms that we have all been subjected to.”
