We Will Not Fade Away
About The Film
In this seemingly bleak wartime setting, five teenagers start to seriously think about their future. Their energy, enthusiasm, and hope allow them to fully live out their last golden hours of childhood despite the circumstances. The members of this imaginative band of dreamers paint, take photographs or fantasize about acting careers or becoming the next Elon Musk. They rebel, ride on the waves of adventure, walk into minefields and sunbathe by a local lake. They dream of escaping not only from the war but also – like teenagers all over the world – from the boredom of a small town. Then, unexpectedly, an opportunity arises to embark on a long journey all the way to Nepal. Will their dream of conquering the world come true?
From Oct. 30 – Nov. 5, 2023, The Centre Film Festival will return for a weekend of the finest offerings in contemporary cinema at the State Theatre in State College and the Rowland Theatre in Philipsburg.
We are back to celebrate the magic of storytelling on the big screen and beyond. Join us in honoring multigenerational narratives and sparking meaningful conversations through art, locally and globally. With the historic Rowland Theatre and State Theatre as our backdrop, we’re getting all set to bring you more than 50 Pennsylvania Premieres, 4 United States Premieres, Made in PA films, a night of Thrills and Chills for Halloween, Sports on Screen, World Cinema, Pride on Screen, and an inaugural Indigenous Peoples Heritage Month track… and so much more.
