PITTSBURGH, PA--The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation will be partnering with Beyond the Porch Productions on the Pennsylvania premiere of the award-winning Superior on August 31 in Pittsburgh. Superior is the first feature film by Edd Benda and Alex Bell, recent graduates of the USC School of Cinematic Arts. It is Edd’s debut as a writer, director and producer.

The premiere will take place at South Side Works. There will be a red carpet reception from 6:30-7:30 pm, to be followed by a showing of the SCA Foundation video, Together We Can Save More Lives, with commentary by Bruce Benda, Edd’s father, who is a cardiac arrest survivor. Superior will begin at 7:45 pm and will be followed with a Q & A session with Edd Benda.

Superior was filmed on location in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the summer of 2014. The production team behind the film consists of eleven young filmmakers who traveled more than 7,000 miles round-trip in a truck and three sedans from Los Angeles to the most remote regions of the Keweenaw Peninsula to tell a story true to its origins. Inspired by the real journey taken by Karl Benda and Dan “Dudza” Junttila more than 40 years ago, Superior is a snapshot of America in 1969 when futures were uncertain, and yet the most outlandish adventures remained possible.
