"Sunset Edge" Filmmaker Daniel Peddle, Kim Thore, Mason Wood, John Purifoy, Triad To Do

Sunset Edge "Will"
Cavu Pictures

Sunset Edge

Sunset Edge is a film that paints the South in a familiar yet eerie light. It was shot entirely in Central and Western North Carolina with a local cast, hand picked from West Forsyth high school and the Dixie Classic Fair. The film is a tribute to the mysteries of youth and the transformative state of rural communities. At times Sunset Edge has the feeling of a horror film, but instead of jump scares you’re treated to sumptuous vistas and stark shots of abandon and decay.
