The performance and media arts program at South Arkansas Community College will premiere two locally-produced films at the El Dorado Conference Center at 7 p.m. on Tuesday (April 28). Admission is free and open to the public.
The first, “Incident on Aisle 14B,” is a fictional movie that originated in the fall 2014 scriptwriting class. Dr. Jack Ryan’s script was selected among the student scripts submitted, and handed over to the film production and design class to create.
“The Mountain Meadows Massacre,” a documentary on an event that took place on the Utah frontier, will be the second film shown. Members of the program’s documentary class produced the film. Grave sites for Capt. James Lynch and his wife Sarah Dunlap Lynch, two Arkansans who experienced the massacre, are located in Hampton.
The performance and media arts program will enter these films in national film festivals for competition.
There will be a question-and-answer period following each film for those who would like to know more about behind-the-scenes production of the movie. Short clips and trailers produced by the students will be shown prior to 7 p.m.
