Join Heartland Film for a special screening of 2015 Heartland Film Festival Official Selection, Narrative Feature Band of Robbers featuring Co-Directors/Co-Writers Adam and Aaron Nee and Special Guest Mark Twain. The evening will include a rare opportunity to see Aaron Nee interview Tom Sawyer (played by Adam Nee) and the master storyteller Mark Twain. 

Film Synopsis: A modern day retelling of Mark Twain’s iconic books, Band of Robbers is a comedic adventure that re-imagines the characters as grown men and small-time crooks. When Huck Finn is released from prison, he hopes to leave his criminal life behind, but his lifelong friend and corrupt cop, Tom Sawyer, has other plans. Not ready to give up on his childhood fantasies, Tom forms the Band of Robbers, recruiting their misfit friends Joe Harper and Ben Rogers to join them for an elaborate plan to find a fabled treasure. But the plan soon unravels, thrusting the guys on a wild journey with dangerous consequences. 

This film contains some language, mild sexual content and some violence. 

Heartland Film Festival Summer Rewind showcases some of the best Heartland Film Festival movies of the past in an abbreviated, three-day mini-festival format, giving moviegoers an opportunity to experience great independent film in the historic Fountain Square cultural district.
