Six independent filmmakers and their films will land on the campus of Western Carolina University this school year.
WCU’s Arts and Cultural Events series, in collaboration with South Arts, will host the Southern Circuit, a tour of independent filmmakers that provides communities across the South access to smaller films and opportunities to join film directors in post-screening discussions. All Southern Circuit offerings are free and will start at 7:30 p.m. in the theater of the A.K. Hinds University Center.
Kicking off the season is “Surviving Hitler: A Love Story” by filmmaker John-Keith Wasson on Tuesday, Sept. 13. This documentary chronicles war, resistance and survival through the eyes of Jutta, a teenager in Nazi Germany, and her sweetheart, Helmuth, an injured soldier.
