Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Two years have passed since the movie Pollywogs was filmed, and now the crew is back in Duluth for its first screening in Minnesota.

Producers of the film say it strives to capture the essence of the state that inspired it.

Co-Director and Actor, Karl Jacob, chatted with fans before and after the screening at the Zinema Theater in Duluth.

"Another reason why this screening is so exciting is because of my family,” Jacob said. “I actually cast my family in a family reunion in the film and this will be the first time they are coming to see it so it's going to be a crazy event."

Pollywogs next screening in Minnesota will be at the Twin Cities Film Festival on Oct. 26.
