Thursday Links

Thanks to Spring Break, I’m blogging up a storm this week.  We’ll see if that lasts once classes start again on Monday.  For now, here are a few links that my North Carolina readers might find interesting, especially those of you in Fayetteville.

  •  First, the Fayetteville Museum of Art will be hosting a premiere party for a new exhibit, “Raw Identity,” this Friday from 6-8 PM.  Amneris Solano of the Fayetteville Observer has more information. The premiere party will include the music of Chapel Hill folk duo, Birds and Arrows.
  • Also on Friday will be a special screening of the film, Brothers at War, a film by Jake Rademacher that explores the effect of the Iraq War on his family while he was embedded with a Marine-trained Iraqi Army unit and while his two brothers were serving in the military. The filmmaker and executive producer Gary Sinise will be present at the screening and will participate in a Q&A after the film. Brian Dukes of the Fayetteville Observer has more information about what sounds like a compelling film.
  • Via Second Cinema, news about a cool upcoming event: Race in NC: Looking Back • Moving Forward, Documentary Film Forum, sponsored by ChathamArts. The event starts at 2:30 pm Saturday March 21 and continues on Sunday afternoon March 22 and takes place in downtown Pittsboro, NC, just outside of Raleigh. Films include Mackey Alston’s Family Name and We Shall Not be Moved, the story of the Tillery, NC, Farm Resettlement.
  • Finally, Full Frame is less than a month away.  I need to sit down soon and start planning my schedule.  I managed to snag a press pass this year, so I’m hoping to overdose on some great documentaries again this year. Any recommendations from this year’s schedule?
