'American Made Movie' to premiere in Lawrenceville

LAWRENCEVILLE — Two Gwinnett County filmmakers have been making appearances, talking with the public and traveling the country to promote their movie.

On Friday, 1999 Dacula High School graduates Nathaniel McGill and Vincent Vittorio are premiering “American Made Movie” at AMC Colonial 18 Theater in Lawrenceville.

“This film shows that every American plays an important role in helping our local and national economy succeed,” Vittorio said. “The movie focuses on the human element in this topic and shows that it doesn’t matter if you are an entrepreneur, student, stay-at-home mom, or a senior citizen, you have the power to transform America’s future and be a part of the solution by just realizing that there is a relationship between what is made and what you buy everyday.”

With all of their hard work that was put into the project, the duo wants to stretch their message to as many people as possible.

“We hope that the movie will reach the largest audience possible,” Vittorio said. “The response has been great and our goal is to get people to share their thoughts on this powerful film. We believe in the content and think that after seeing the movie that people will take a more involved role in seeing where things are made.”

According to its official website, “American Made Movie” is a documentary “examining the factors contributing to the decline of the American manufacturing workforce and the integral role consumerism plays in getting the economy back on track.”

Friday’s show times are 11:30 a.m., 2, 4:20, 6:40 and 9 p.m. “American Made Movie” is showing in Lawrenceville through Sept. 5.

AMC Colonial 18 is located at 825 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road in Lawrenceville. For more information about the flick, visit www.theamericanmademovie.com.
