New movie premiered last weekend was produced by a Gulfport native.

At 25, Gulfport native Cameron Lewis became a doctor. Today, he is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who is using his professional success to help minister to people whose need for healing in a more spiritual direction.

Lewis is executive producer of the film “A Question of Faith,” which opened on 661 screens on Sept. 29, including on the Coast.

 

Blood Country set to premiere at Dixie Theatre Friday, Oct. 13

The name of the film is Blood Country. In March, the Southern Sentinel gave report of a film being shot at a cabin owned by Bobby Martin in Ripley. Multiple key scenes from the film were shot at the cabin. Producer Matthew Horton accredits the cabin along with other historic locations such as the Jacinto Courthouse and the Rodney Presbyterian Church, to adding a degree of authenticity and realism to the film.
