ROCHESTER - Rochester Opera House will be screening the new Farmington High School student movie "Detention," produced by the award wining FSDTV25 on April 5.
Detention is "The Breakfast Club" meets "Point Break." As six students sit through Saturday detention, a person dressed as President Trump breaks into the school in search of something or someone. Soon the students quickly realize they are not who they claim to be while hiding for their lives.
Each student's story is told through flashbacks i.e. a cheat, a thief, a fighter, etc. As the stories unravel, the students' notice each of them is somehow connected to each other and the masked assailant.
The movie explores multiple issues including bullying, dating, corrupt administration, drugs, and violence. These are all areas students struggle with on their daily routine, when a simple click button on Facebook can rule someone's life.
The screening at Rochester Opera is part of Detention's campaign to urge local towns across the stage to donate to the "End 68 Hours of Hunger" project. Students are not charging admission to the event but asking patrons to bring non-perishable food items.
FSDTV25 along with the Rochester Opera House recognizes the importance of helping others and our community. Students involved in this production have also created several public service announcements for the Granite Youth Alliance. This is the 8th year FSDTV25 has held their "Movie Night".
The screening will be held April 5 at 7 p.m. at the Rochester Opera House.
Admission/Suggested Donation: Free - bring non-perishable food item
This event is open to the public.
