Lambent Fuse to screen at Twin Cities Film Fest


On Friday, September 23, 2011, the highly anticipated festival screening of the emerging Minnesota independent film Lambent Fuse will take place at the Kerasotes Showplace ICON Theatre at West End (Park Place Boulevard St. Louis Park, MN 55416) starting at 7:30pm as a part of the 2nd annual Twin Cities Film Fest. Lambent Fuse is a character-driven story about a man who plunges into a detached world full of regret after recent and tragic events trigger his slide into depression. The choices of a depressive man, a kleptomaniac, two amateur thieves, a mysterious chef, and a corrupt cop cause their intertwining lives and dynamic outcomes.

It will be a night of celebration and entertainment with an informative question and answer panel featuring the cast and crew, all from Minnesota. Tickets for this event are on sale now and may be purchased at:

In addition to informing the audience of the film’s three years in-the-making, the filmmakers will be promoting the project’s initiatives, including the movie’s focus on mental health in film and involvement of community arts.

Lambent Fuse

September 23, 7:30pm
Director: Matt Cici
99 minutes

Lambent Fuse is a story about Freddie Goone, a man who plunges into a detached world full of regret after recent and tragic events trigger his slide into depression. Allison Swansonʼs kleptomania undermines her ability to hold a job and maintain a relationship with an emotionally detached and swiftly sinking Freddie. Paul Dobbler, a mysterious chef and past decorated foreign soldier, takes it upon himself to meddle in the life of a woman with whom he’s deeply infatuated. Phillip Richter seeks to overcome allegations that threaten his long sought-after promotion as police captain. Keith Malone and Vincent Becker embark on a series of robberies that land them in a situation that is way over their heads.

Director Bio:
Matt Cici makes his feature film directorial debut with Lambent Fuse. During his first collegiate spring break, he created “Eidolon,” a short film about a man wrestling for control of his schizophrenia, which won him praise and allowed him the opportunity to win several scholarships. Cici partnered up with friend David Marketon to write Lambent Fuse and then graduated from Hamline University with his own developed Film Studies major, alongside winning a grant to further polish the screenplay. He has previously won international acclaim with a few of his short films. These include “The Writer,” a short experimental film about a novelist struggling with writer’s block, which won the Augsburg Fine Arts Award in 2008, as well as the Phi Theta Kappa’s Video Arts Award in 2008.
