Arizona International Film Festival

For Immediate Release:

Filmmaker Barton Santello is proud to announce that his 2006 film: "The Outskirts of Infinity" has been selected for screening at this year's Arizona International Film Festival in Tucson.

The film is summarized as follows:

This work expresses the filmmaker’s artistic vision of visual opportunities present in an Arizona ghost town. Images of the ghost town; archival footage; the secret life of the sole caretaker and the flight of migratory bats, are inexplicably woven into a mysterious tapestry of storied images unbounded by a sense of time.

"I orignally went to the ghost town of Ruby, Arizona to film migratory bats that reside in an abandoned mine shaft and possibly make a wildlife documentary. However, after spending several weeks in the town, time getting to know the caretaker and filming old ruins, I knew the film was going to become something bigger. As typical with my productions, I filmed first and put the movie together later. I trusted the present moment experiences I had on film and used several 'psycho-active' soundscapes from 'A Produce'. The finished production more than exceeded my expectations for the 'form' of film I want to create" - Barton Santello

Additonal details on "Outskirts" and its showing at the Arizona International Film Festival will be forthcoming.
