MANIPULATION OF THE THREADS
is Rusted Sun Films' second feature length
film. The idea for the film was born from a conversation between the
writer Bevan B. Bell and a close friend. The idea of a "Heist Film"
seemed an appealing change of genre for the "boys" at RSF to tackle.

film runs approximately 93 minutes and is accompanied by a 35 minute "making

bloopers. From viewing the film and it's additional material, one can
easily take away from it that those involved with the film had a blast
making it. DIVINE MANIPULATION OF THE THREADS was filmed in Memphis,
Tennessee and it's surrounding areas during 2005 and 2006.
