WILLOW GARDEN by Jim Haverkamp
Sunday, April 27 at 5 p.m.
Shot in an expressionistic, film noir style, Willow Garden tells the backstory of one of America's strangest murder ballads in which a young man must decide whether to follow his heart or his father’s twisted advice. The striking black and white cinematography gives the film the feeling of a dark fable, fueled by the characters' elemental passions.
Opening Short: Moth to Light by Elizabeth Strickler - Through a dark and tense atmosphere twists the horrific coming of age of Muriel. Caught between the domestic world of her mother and a dark and luring force in the garden, she contemplates what to do with the baby her mother dotes on and whose origins are unknown.
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.
