"Indiana Bum and the Pamphlet of the Dead"

Liberty Hall Cinema

On May 31, 2006 a very special 30 minute movie entitled "Indiana Bum and the Pamphlet of the Dead" will be shown at 7pm at Liberty Hall in Lawrence. The video is the first movie to be produced by Tracy Bowersox after receiving his wish of a computer with video-editing software in November of 2004. The computer and software was a gift from the Children's Wish Foundation (Not to be confused with the Make-a-wish Foundation). Tracy has Cystic Fibrosis and all of the $5 per seat admission fee for the Wednesday premier will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (cff.org). The movie is a comedy/action movie featuring characters that Tracy and his cousin Jordan Rebman created in earlier short videos. The main characters are a crime-fighting archeologist named Indiana Bum and his sidekick, a stick horse named Patsy. In this movie they are helping a police detective named Bill Bills find the thief that made off with the Aztec Pamphlet of the Dead, which Bill says is "Like the Tibetan Book of the Dead only shorter...and Aztec.". The trio soon find themselves locked in a life-or-death struggle with a ruthless thief and a notorious hitman.Tracy is an energetic and precocious 14 year old with creative interests including art, movies, and music. He also has a strong interest in modern Japanese culture. So when he was given a wish he was torn between a trip to Japan, a drum set, or video editing equipment. The more he weighed the alternatives, however, the more the editing equipment seemed to be the best choice. Since then he has put the professional-grade software to good use editing his biggest project to date.The Bowersox family live in Tonganoxie Kansas. The father is Kevin and the mother is Jodi. Tracy's brother Tristan is 18 years old and attends Johnson County Community College. Tracy attends Tonganoxie Junior HighSchool.

Very well done, Mr. Bowersox. Honestly, there was more cleverness and fun packed into those 30 minutes than in "The Da Vinci Code" and "X-Men: The Last Stand" combined. (Not to damn your movie with faint praise, of course.) My wife and I are very eagerly anticipating the sequel.
