Filmmaker Allen Baldwin, Bowdoin Class of 1999, will see his film 12 Steps Outside receive its hometown premiere in Portland Wednesday, November 13.

The Portland-made film by StrongPaw Productions will be shown at the Movies on Exchange Street in the Old Port at 7 and 9 p.m. Tickets are $4.

12 Steps Outside, shot locally on 16mm black and white film and starring local talent, tells the story of two bumbling friends who try to leave the problems of their urban lives behind them by attempting to walk out of the city. The film's soundtrack features music by local bands.

12 Steps Outside first premiered at the Maine International Film Festival in Waterville, where it played to a full house. At its Portland premiere it will be introduced by Baldwin, the film's director and producer. Baldwin and two lead actors will do a Q&A after each screening of the film.
