Place Over Time: Perspectives on the South Through Film Hands On a Hardbody
/// December 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for a film screening of “Hands on a Hardbody,” the second event in a three part film series exploring the South over time. “Hands on a Hardbody” is a documentary about a competition to win a hardbody truck in a small Texas town. It is one of the most enduring and charming portraits of Southern life during the mid-90s and spawned a Broadway musical and a feature screenplay from accalimed director Robert Altman.
The screening will be followed by a conversation with the local cast and crew of the film.
This event is free and open to the public, thanks to the generous support of The Helis Foundation. Limited seating is available on a first come, first seated basis.
