The new film, Of Minor Prophets, was inspired by the biblical story of Hosea who was commanded by God to marry a harlot. The film was shot in northwestern Iowa and Sioux Falls and tells the story of lonely, bachelor farmer Doug who befriends Ami, a prostitute with suspicious intentions. It explores themes of love, forgiveness, sacrifice and deceit. Cora Vander Broek stars as Ami and Kris Kling is Doug.
Of Minor Prophets, which screens Saturday evening at the Orpheum Theater in Sioux Falls, is the first full-length feature film for Passenger Productions. The company’s owner, Joe Huber, directed the film. He and producer Andrew Reinartz joined Dakota Midday to discuss the film.
