Tinnell Brothers Bring Feast Of The 7 Fishes Tradition To Life On The Big Screen


On this West Virginia Morning, Feast of the Seven Fishes is a new movie set in Marion County. The comedy is adapted from a graphic novel by the same name and follows an Italian-American family on Christmas Eve. Cast members have played in productions like Jumanji, The Righteous Gemstones and The Sopranos.

Jeff Tinnell is one of the film’s producers, while his brother, Bob, wrote the graphic novel. The two grew up in the area where the movie was shot. Our news director, Jesse Wright, spoke with the Tinnell brothers about the project. We hear part of that conversation.

Also on today’s show, an organization in Wheeling dedicated to trauma-informed play for children held a public film screening and lecture this week exploring the topic of adverse childhood experiences. Corey Knollinger reports.
