Speed Cinema Presents: Sherman’s March

July 2, 2017 at 12:15 pm - 2:35 pm

Free Owsley Sunday Film

Directed by Ross McElwee

“A wonderfully goofy, pertinent movie.” —Vincent Canby, New York Times

Heartbroken from being dumped by his girlfriend on the eve of his documentary shoot, director Ross McElwee continues his project re-tracing the original route followed by General William Sherman. Rather than cutting a swath of destruction designed to force the Confederate South into submission, as Sherman did, McElwee is waylaid in his search for love, camera in hand.

This hilarious and charming documentary won the Sundance Film Festival when it was released and was chosen by the Library Congress for the National Film Registry in 2000. 1986, U.S., video, 144 minutes. Recommended for 13+.

Screening in conjunction with the exhibition Southern Accent: Seeking the American South in Contemporary Art.
