Set and shot entirely in Arkansas, Antiquities was Mortuus Pater’s first production. Written by Graham Gordy (Quarry, Rectify) and Daniel Campbell, who also directs, the film stars Andrew J. West (The Walking Dead), Ashley Greene (Twilight series), Michaela Watkins (Casual), Michael Gladis (Mad Men), and Arkansas’s own Academy Award-winner, Mary Steenburgen.
The story centers around a young man (West) who, after his father’s death, moves to his dad's hometown to learn more about who he was. Most of the movie takes place in an antiques consignment mall, filmed at Galaxy Office Furniture & Design Center in North Little Rock, home to a host of eccentric characters.
