The Desiring

Filmed in the area from a script by Winston-Salem native Graham Pritz-Bennett, this film follows Richard, a typical Southern American who works hard and loves his wife, Claire. However, when he discovers her with another man, instead of feeling betrayed, Richard finds himself increasingly intrigued by the affair. His curiosity triggers conflicting emotions, uprooting his assumptions from the past. As he falls deeper into despair, he wrestles with the resentment he harbors toward his father and begins to yearn for the love he desires. WORLD PREMIERE
