Kurt Bills’ U.S. Senate campaign enters campaign film in 48 Hour Film Project

The Republican-endorsed candidate stars in a “Twilight Zone” film takeoff.

State Rep. Kurt Bills, the Republican-endorsed candidate running against U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, stars in a film that his campaign has made for the 48 Hour Film Project.

His campaign site has a short trailer for the film, which will be previewed tonight at the Riverview Theater at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10.

The film, “Staring into the Future,” is a “Twilight Zone” takeoff. The trailer shows a very rough-looking, down-on-his-luck fellow, and a Rod Serling-like narrator.

Bills has the Rod Serling role.
