Many benefit from movie filmed in Cape Girardeau

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Love Chronicles (of the Cape) premiered over the weekend in Cape Girardeau. The movie was shot in Cape Girardeau and included
over 100 locals that were featured in the film. 

Heartland News caught up with Director Dan Steadman and Actress Jessica Ambuehl. 

"It's great to see so many people involved from Cape and the surrounding area," said Steadman. "After shooting the movie I saw a lot of people networking with each other and even creating their own films."

Ambuehl feels that Cape Girardeau was the perfect location for this movie. 

"There is a lot of talented actors in this area," Ambuehl said. "Not only that but what Cape had to offer was everything we needed for what we wanted to film."

The premiere of the movie was shown at Rose Theatre on SEMO's Campus. Friday nights red carpet event was sold out with over 400 people who came out to watch the film. 

"It's great to see so many local people in the film," Steadman said. "The laughter and tears from people shows that we had all the elements for an impactful and great feature."

The film is about a female documentarian (Jessica Ambuehl) who comes to Cape Girardeau, Missouri, on a mission to make a documentary about love. 

Along her path, she and her cameraman (Chris Murphy) discover all kinds of Midwestern eccentrics - sincere, kind, hopeful, crazy, and lovely.
