CMLC is partnering with the Center for Cultural Preservation and David Weintraub for our June Speaker Series!
Call of the Ancient Mariner, a new film by Hendersonville filmmaker David Weintraub, will hold its Hendersonville premiere at the Unitarian Fellowship in Hendersonville on Friday, June 12th. The documentary wowed Charleston audiences last month when it played to packed houses and won Best of the Festival at the Charleston Film Festival.
Mariner tells the story of man’s love affair with sea turtles that goes back since the dawn of time. The film was shot throughout the Southeastern US and all of the original music was created by local WNC musicians. In addition to offering audiences a chance to see a film that Charleston Film Festival director Paul Brown called “compelling” and “truly resonating with the audience,” the June 12th showing will be followed by a discussion with the filmmaker, Land Protection Director Tom Fanslow from Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy, and representatives from MountainTrue. The film will be followed by a DVD Release Party in Fellowship Hall featuring musicians Carol Duermit and Michele Skeele as well as refreshments. DVDs and T-shirts will be available for sale following the screening.
The Hendersonville debut will be held at the Unitarian Fellowship at 409 E Patterson St off of Kanuga Avenue at 7:00 pm on Friday, June 12th.
