Green Fields Grad Is Star and Co-Producer of “To Hell and Gone”

April 13, 2019 @ 7:00 pm MST

Green Fields Grad Is Star and Co-Producer of “To Hell and Gone”
World Premiere April 13 at Arizona International Film Festival

Native Tucsonan Carr Cavender is the star and co-producer of “To Hell and Gone” – a modern-day spaghetti western that will have its world premiere at the Arizona International Film Festival on April 13 at 7 p.m. at The Screening Room in downtown Tucson. Audience members will have the chance to meet him at the event.

Cavender graduated from Green Fields K-12 School in northwest Tucson in 2007. He will return to talk to students and show clips from the film on April 11 at 2:30 p.m.

The young filmmaker studied drama and theatre at the University of San Diego, where he met fellow student Kyle Moore. The two became fast friends and now co-producers of their first feature film.

“To Hell and Gone” was 2 ½ years in the making and was filmed on ranch land Cavender’s parents own near Oro Valley and in and around the near-ghost town of Klondyke, Arizona, which his family also owns and which he visited regularly while growing up. That location is roughly 50 miles down a 4-wheel-drive road west of Safford, where the crew also filmed for several days.

The 82-minute film was made on a shoestring budget crowd-financed through Indiegogo.

Cavender’s career highlights include “Doyle Spitz!,” a 2015 short comedy which he directed, stared in and co-wrote and “Hot Box,” a 2014 action film short he directed. In2013 he also was in several episodes of the action-drama television series, “The Rolling Soldier.”

Tickets for the “To Hell and Gone” presentation are $8 plus a $2.30 fee. They can be ordered online at http://www.filmfestivalarizona.com or by calling (520) 401-4328.

The 28th annual Arizona International Film Festival will be held from April 10 to 21 at The Screening Room, 127 E Congress St. Over the years the festival has exhibited more than 2,800 films representing 95 countries to 160,000+ patrons in Southern Arizona.

Founded in 1933 Green Fields is Southern Arizona’s oldest independent school. Green Fields offers a continuum of classes from kindergarten through 12th grade.

At Green Fields, students can explore their passions and their potential through academics, arts and athletics, as well as through unique enrichment programs at every grade level.
