WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A movie filmed in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach will make its debut at the Hamptons International Film Festival.

A Short History of Decay, starring Linda Lavin, Bryan Greenberg and Harris Yulin, will premiere on Saturday, October 12 in South Hampton.

A Short History of Decay is an independent film about a man who takes on the role of caregiver for his parents.

In the movie, Lavin plays mother who is in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease.

Michael Maren wrote and directed the flick, which is based on his mother's battle with Alzheimer's.

Maren said he picked Wrightsville Beach for the project due to the experienced crew in the area and the film incentives.

The film also stars Emmanuelle Chriqui and Kathleen Rose Perkins.

The movie marked Lavin's last as a resident of Wilmington. Lavin, a Tony and Golden Globe-winning actress, lived in Wilmington for 17 years. She moved to New York because she had been getting more work in the Big Apple.

Wilmington-based actors Henry Bazemore, Jr., Myke Holmes, Barbara Weetman and Anthony Reynolds, who recently appeared in Prisoners, also landed roles in the film.
