HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) — Houston native Nell Teare’s new film “Bolivar” premieres Wednesday night at the Museum of Fine Arts.
Teare also wrote, produced and starred in Bolivar with sister Hannah Young and brother Sean Teare.
The Teare siblings spoke to ABC13 about the emotional drama, Teare’s first feature film.
“The new film continues with a common thread running through Nell’s previous work – exploring the human condition,” says a press release announcing the film. “Stunning cinematography melds with the depth Nell brings to her character, and the result is a truly achingly beautiful exploration of grief.”
The film, which also stars Robert Pine, Alex Desert, Taylor Blackwell, Christine Kellogg-Darrin and Tracie Thomas, follows a woman named Maggie as she struggles with the death of her mother. Frequent flashbacks show the family on Port Bolivar beach off the coast of Galveston.
In real life, the Teare family used to visit Bolivar and other beaches around Houston. Teare’s mother, an actress Houstonians may know from her work at the Alley Theater, died 11 years ago. Her father, a professor at the University of Houston, died last year.
Houstonians can see Bolivar Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
