“The Fugue,” an original film produced by Kathryn O’Sullivan, will be shown on July 30 at 9:30 p.m. at the Old Town Theater on King Street in Alexandria. O’Sullivan is a drama professor at the Manassas Campus of Northern Virginia Community College.

“The Fugue” is a thriller about a young graphic designer living in Chinatown who is haunted by the spirit of a dead childhood friend. O’Sullivan served as executive producer and her husband, Paul Awad, was writer, director and editor.

“The Fugue” was filmed last summer in the Washington metropolitan area. Several NVCC drama students appear in the film: Carole Bellacera, Tina Cipara, Evan Shaw and Nicole Underwood of Manassas, Jared Mehraban of Bristow, Harold Demas and Raj Sandhu of Centreville, Kawan Karadaghi of Herndon, Jacob Yeh of McLean and Bob Martin of Sterling. Two other actors, Summers Askew and Rebecca Kiser, were cast from the Center for the Arts in Manassas.
