The Discoverers

The Discoverers

A washed-up history professor (Oscar-nominated Griffin Dunne) takes his begrudging teenage kids on a road trip to a conference in hopes of finding a new job. But when his estranged father goes AWOL on a Lewis and Clark historical reenactment trek, the travelers are forced to forge a different trail westward.  The Discoverers features a breakout performance by 2013 RiverRun Spark Award honoree Madeleine Martin, best known for her role as Becca Moody on Showtimes's David Duchovny-anchored series Californication.  The film also features supporting performances from Dreama Walker, Scott Adsit, John C. McGinley, Ann Dowd, Stuart Margolin and David Rasche, and was executive produced by UNCSA School of Filmmaking faculty member Bob Gosse. Director Justin Schwarz and star Madeleine Martin (and others) to be in attendance for screenings!
