Opening Short: Tour of Homes by Penny Brice - Once described as the southern belle with a dirty face, Savannah is a city of contradictions, primarily between the haves and have-nots. With its Spanish Moss-draped trees and genteel historic district, it has a dark underbelly of poverty and crime, sustained by racial inequality and fueled by denial. Tour of Homes provides an alternative tour to the ones that cart tourists through the affluent environment of historic downtown Savannah.
The screening is free and moviegoers will have the opportunity to speak with the filmmaker(s). Space is limited; reservations are encouraged. To make reservations, or to receive additional information, contact the I.P. Stanback Museum and Planetarium at (803) 928-6851.
The film is presented as a community service of SC State.
The 2007-2008 Southern Circuit is a program of the Southern Arts Federation.
