PICTURES: "The American Side" Filming In Buffalo

The latest movie to film in the Greater Buffalo Niagara region is a thriller called "The American Side", in town for the next several weeks.

" 'There are three sides to every story... the truth, the lie and the American Side.'

In 1943, inventor Nikola Tesla died penniless in the New Yorker Hotel. Within 24 hours, the U.S. government seized everything in his room... but one design was already missing.

Seventy years later, in Buffalo, NY, a brilliant young engineer has found it. And the only person she can trust is a low-rent detective with a pack-a-day habit"
