Summit Takes Home Twilight Documentary


First word on DVD release

Summit Home Entertainment announced today that it has acquired the feature-length documentary Twilight in Forks: The Saga of the Real Town.

Directed by Jason Brown, the doc chronicles for Twilight fans the story behind Forks, Washington, which serves as the primary setting for the popular “Twilight” books and films. Additionally, the documentary features untold tales of Forks’ unique history, mysticism and culture.

Fans will get to hear from the real people living their lives in the town, including: the Chief of Police, the Forks Outfitters’ employee who gets mistaken for the franchise’s leading lady Bella, and the vampire transplant who plays the real-life role of Alice. They’ll also visit Forks High School, hear self-described Jacob’s grandfather tell the legend of how the Quileutes descended from wolves, and see many more of the people and places of Forks.

Summit plans to release the film onto DVD in conjunction with the home entertainment debut of the second film in the Twilight franchise – The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which is set to arrive in stores during the first part of 2010.
