After two years in the making, Whidbey Island native Orson Ossman and his production company “The Ironwood Gang” are ready to present their new feature film, “The Phoenix Project.”

The storyline explores the motivations and ethical boundaries of the mind. It follows four scientists who try to reanimate deceased organisms while dealing with the internal balance of ethics, logic, emotion, and ingenuity. Each character in the film represents a different part of the human brain.

A screening is scheduled at the Clyde, where they hope to invite local kick-starter supporters as well as any family, friends, or community members.

“A lot of people contributed to the film,” Ossman said. “I want them to see the film they contributed to.”

Using a state of the art camera, called RED camera technology, the Ironwood Gang made the movie to be watched on a big screen. They plan on entering the film in various film festivals, such as the Sundance Film Festival.

The screening will be on Sunday Aug. 25, at 1 p.m. There will be a question and answer time after the showing for audience members.
