The New Mexico Film Office Announces Feature Film “The Line” Is Currently Filming in New Mexico
Santa Fe, N.M. - New Mexico Film Office Director Amber Dodson announced today that the feature film, “The Line,” has begun production in Las Cruces.
“We are thrilled to welcome ‘The Line’ to Las Cruces. In addition to showcasing our unique locations and talented crew, the film is providing some great opportunities for students to gain invaluable experience,” Las Cruces Film Liaison Andrew Jara said.
The film is a story about Emily, a young filmmaker who sets out to shoot a documentary about reuniting with her estranged mother of fourteen years. When her mother vanishes, Emily’s project explodes from an intimate exploration of family into something much more sinister.
"The Line” is produced by Gary Lucchesi (“Million Dollar Baby”), Aaron Kogan (“5 Doctors”), Steven Klein (Emmy-nominated “Wrestle”), and Michael McKay (“The Age of Adaline”), and Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker, Pedro Kos (“Lead Me Home”), is set to direct.
"I fell in love with Las Cruces and have been so inspired by this area that it's becoming its own character in our film, as we are rooting our story in the local community,” Kos stated.
The production is employing over 60 New Mexicans – approximately 25 background talent, 28 resident crew members, and 8 actors.
