West of redemption
In this tense, dramatic thriller shot in Eastern Washington, Billy Zane stars as a loving but jealous husband of a farmhouse-dwelling couple who takes a stranger hostage and interrogates him, unwinding a complicated web of mysteries in the process. Beautifully acted and well-crafted, we are incredibly excited to also be welcoming some of the filmmakers themselves. Also starring Mariana Klaveno and Kevin Alejandro. Dir. by Corrie Moore, Produced by Larry Estes, Tony Becerra, Executive Produced by Rich Cowan and written by Meagan Daine.

Cornelia Duryee Moore is a writer, director, actor, casting director, choreographer and acting coach. Prior to directing West of Redemption, she wrote and directed The Dark Horse, her first feature, which premiered at Seattle International Film Festival in 2008. Her second feature was Camilla Dickinson, her adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s novel Camilla, starring Adelaide Clemens, Cary Elwes, Samantha Mathis, and Gregg Sulkin. The film premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival in 2012. Her short film, Dancing With You, screened at multiple film festivals, winning at Gloria Film Festival and Genesis Software.

She enjoys working with Zombie Orpheus Productions and Dead Gentlemen Productions, and has filled many roles on their sets. As a writer, she was mentored by Madeleine L’Engle, her Godmother, for nearly thirty years, and adapted two of Madeleine’s novels into screenplays: Camilla Dickinson and Love Letters of a Portuguese Nun, which was a finalist in the First Glance Screenplay Competition and a semi-finalist at Slamdance.
Moore co-founded the Seattle Shakespeare Festival (now “Company”), directed there, and served as its casting director for seven years. Favorite memories from several decades of theatre work: a featured role in the film Zombies of Mass Destruction, appearing with son Tallis in Book-It Repertory Theatre’s Peter Pan, dancing pregnant with Bill T. Jones’ company, and on the TV show Northern Exposure, choreographing on members of New York City Ballet, playing Lettice in Lettice and Lovage, Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Isabella in Measure For Measure.
