Flyover Country is an independent film directed by Jim Fields, co-written by Jim Fields and Shaun Vetick, and produced by Neva Cozine, Jim Fields, and Shaun Vetick of Objectif 49 Films. Featuring a vibrant cast, Flyover Country is an entertaining depiction of the social struggles facing all generations today in the heartland of America. It is a comedy drama about life in the midwest. Todd and Russ, two twenty-something college students, meet in a contemporary English literature class. Soon they become good friends, but that friendship is tested when Russ finds out that Todd is openly gay. In addition, their lives become more complicated when all of Russ’s family & friends begin to believe Russ is also gay. Things don’t go well for Todd either once his religious conservative sister and family find out about his sexual orientation. Surrounded by polarized family and friends, Russ and Todd’s paths continue to cross as they both search for a better life in Flyover Country.
Dereck will be playing selections from his 5 solo albums as well as presenting a talk on his involvement in alternative music.
