H. screening at Revolution Hall

Maybe you remember a while back there was that independent movie that filmed in Troy and involved a scene in which a giant head was floating in the Hudson River...

Well, that there's a screening of that film -- H. -- this Tuesday, October 25 at Revolution Hall at 7 pm. It's free to attend, though it looks like they'd appreciate an RSVP.

Directed by Rania Attieh and Daniel Garcia, H. filmed in Troy in 2014. And the film is set in the city. It made its debut in theaters earlier this year, and it's now available from iTunes.

The trailer is embedded above. The plot summary from iTunes:

H. is a mysterious, modern interpretation of a classic tragedy in which two women, each named Helen, live mirrored lives in the town of Troy, NY. The first Helen is in her 60s, lives with her husband, and takes care of an eerily lifelike baby doll called a "Reborn Doll," which she cares for as though it were alive. The second Helen is in her 30s, has a successful art career and is four months pregnant. One night, something unexplainable falls out of the sky and explodes over the town. In the aftermath of this event, bizarre and unexplainable things begin to happen. As people in the town go missing en masse and unnatural cloud formations begin appearing in the sky, the two women find themselves and their lives spinning out of control.

The film got a handful of reviews, many of them positive.
