Local Film Premier “Roots With Wings”
April 14, 2018 : 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Please join us for an all-day film premiere of student films from our Floyd County High School “Roots with Wings” oral history project, Saturday, April 14, at the Jessie Peterman Memorial Library. We’re presenting From the Front Porch to the Front Lines: Rural Virginia on a Threshold of Change, a DVD set produced by the Floyd Story Center at the Old Church Gallery, Ltd., a product of a nine-year effort to collect the stories of Floyd County residents who came of age during the Great Depression and World War II.
This collection, funded in part by a public humanities grant from Virginia Humanities, includes a DVD set of short films and a twelve-page biographical booklet, representing the trove of oral histories (1999-2017) held in the Old Church Gallery digital archives. The DVD set will be available to the public and also distributed to Montgomery-Floyd Regional Library branches.
