BELFAST — As a continuation of showcasing independent film with hyper-local relevancy, the Colonial Theatre, 163 High St., screens “Sunner” with Belfast native filmmaker Henry Spritz Wednesday, Aug. 31, at 7 p.m.

Shot in various locations including Belfast, “Sunner” is set in a fictional Maine town where a small group of recent high school graduates agonize over the best way to honor the friends they’ve lost in an opioid epidemic that has blighted their generation. The movie won Best Maine Feature at the 25th Maine International Film Festival earlier this summer.

Spritz makes his feature film directorial debut with “Sunner” and will be in attendance for a post-screening discussion about the film.
