PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - An independent film shot in South Dakota is set to make its premiere at San Diego's Comic-Con this month.
"Dust of War" tells the story of a lone soldier who fends off a warmonger to rescue a girl fated to be the savior of mankind. The film was shot in South Dakota and many of the film's crew hail from the Mount Rushmore State.
"Dust of War" will premiere July 18 at Comic-Con in San Diego.
The film's director, Andrew Kightlinger, says the story caters directly to Comic-Con's audience. He says it's a "smashing place" for the film's debut.
Department of Tourism Secretary Jim Hagen says he is excited that the film's debut at Comic-Con will showcase the state of South Dakota.
