ROW 211 FILMS, a Rogue Valley production company composed of Southern Oregon University alumni, is planning to make its first independent feature film in 2017: “Emma Was Here,” a poignant drama about a terminally ill young woman’s decision to end her life via Oregon’s Death With Dignity Act — but not before journeying to the coast to have the vacation of a lifetime with her sister and closest friends.

A reading of the screenplay, written by Daniel Rester, will be from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13, in the Arena Room, Stevenson Union Building at SOU, 1250 Siskiyou Blvd, Ashland. Tickets are free, but donations are encouraged to help support the making of the film. The concept trailer will be shown after the reading, which is being sponsored by the SOU Film Club.
