Silent Storytellers Screening at the Clinton School

Posted on 08 Mar 2010

Last Friday, March 5, Silent Storytellers was screened at the Clinton School for Public Service. It was the first public screening of Silent Storytellers, a documentary that explores the history and preservation of Arkansass cemeteries.

About 300 people attended the screening and the film was very well received. Silent Storytellers is a great project because it affects so many people and the fact that the venue was standing room only proved that.

Many of the interviewees from the film were in attendance, including several with the Arkansas Archeological Survey, Norton Arts, PAAC (The Preservation of African-American Cemeteries) and several individuals from cemetery associations across the state.

Following the screening, director Hop Litzwire and co-producer Casey Sanders answered questions from the audience. The very first question was regarding the possibility of a follow-up. Hop and Casey both said theyd like to do one if funding allows, which proves that youve really hit the mark if you can leave the audience both satisfied and wanting more.

Silent Storytellers features cemeteries in Boone, Crawford, Franklin, Hempstead, Johnson, Lawrence, Newton, Pulaski, Searcy and Sevier counties. Be sure to tune in Thursday, March 11 at 6:30 p.m.
