Zack Sutherland is a Fremont 20-something who has directed a feature-length independent film. The comedy, titled “Cheap Fun,” is screening at 7:30 p.m. tonight (Thursday, April 25) at the Camera 3 Cinemas in downtown San Jose. The theater is at 288 South 2nd Street.
Here’s a quick synopsis of the film: It tells the story of a group of friends on one wild night – a night that might determine the course of the rest of their lives as they attempt to battle their lack of momentum with drugs, alcohol and a series of increasingly terrible decisions.
Sutherland, a San Jose State University grad, works in Fremont’s Mission San Jose neighborhood. The film screened at the historic Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum last year and was an official selection at the Cinequest Film Festival in 2012. Select cast and crew members will be joining Sutherland at the event for a Q&A after the screening.
Tickets are available at the box office or at cameracinemas.com.
And about that last name, Zack, any relation to Kiefer or Donald? “I wish, ” he said with a laugh.
