'Finding Hillywood,' second of three Mary B. Martin school screenings
ETSU's Mary B. Martin School of the Arts presents the film "Finding Hillywood" Monday, March 17, at 7 p.m. with Director/Producer Leah Warshawski as part of the South Arts Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers. Hillywood is the second of three independent films Mary B. Martin School is bringing to ETSU spring semester.
"In "Finding Hillywood," we get to hear the Rwandans telling their own story and watch the difference that film makes in lives. It's another case where you can find out about another culture we don't normally come in contact with in our region, and we at Mary B. Martin School of the Arts love to do that."
After the free screening of the film in ETSU's Martha Street Culp Auditorium, Warshawski and the audience will engage in a discussion about the film and her work as a filmmaker. A reception will follow. Film and reception are free and open to the public.
The film's final act takes a breathtaking turn as the people of Rwanda feel the impact of seeing their culture represented on the biggest screen available.
"'Finding Hillywood' gives me goosebumps," says Phil Alden Robinson, writer and director of the film "Field of Dreams."
"Finding Hillywood" has won Best Documentary honors at the Montreal International Black Film Festival and Napa Valley, Afghanistan Human Rights and Eugene International film festivals.
The director/producers of Hillywood bring years of experience in the medium to the project. Finding Hillywood is her first documentary feature.
Producer/Director/Director of Photography Chris Towey has worked in the film industry for nearly three decades.
