Andrew S. Rotondi’s Film “Friends In Heaven” Debuts Tonight In Boston

Director/Producer Andrew S. Rotondi’s film, Friends In Heaven, makes its debut at the Bell in Hand Tavern on Friday evening, October 29, 2010 on 45 Union Street in Faneuil Hall.

Along with being set at the Bell In Hand, the film has a creepy Halloween vibe to it with the concept of a man who hasn’t spoken to his brother in five years having to bury that brother.

With an equally chilly character a la Julian Beck’s “Kane” in Poltergeist 2, a television producer with a series called “Friends in Heaven” turns things upside down with a Rod Serling-esque play of art reflecting life. With shades of the Jenny Jones show where a guest was killed after a set-up, Friends in Heaven’s Kane character could face the same fate.

An ambitious film by a Massachusetts filmmaker.
