Andrew Librizzi Talks About Burning the Nativity

In this week's video blog, writer/director Andrew Librizzi talks about the genesis of the BEYOND story and the film's unforgettable opening scene in which a United States Senator, played by veteran actor Andrew Prine, burns the town's nativity scene. Mr. Prine, a renowned Hollywood actor, is known for his roles in The Miracle Worker, Gettysburg, Chisum and the producers of BEYOND were so pleased by his participation in this project.

The night of the "Burning the nativity" shoot was Mr. Prine's first day of production and a chilling introduction for this California resident to the Lone Star state as the only Texas blizzard ever recorded on the first day of Spring! Of course, cinematically, it made the scene poetic, compelling and horrifyingly beautiful.
