Film & Discussion: King, A Filmed Record, Montgomery to Memphis
KING: A FILMED RECORD; MONTGOMERY TO MEMPHIS was originally screened for one night only in 1970 in more than 600 theaters across the United States.
This tribute to the late Dr.King. while both a huge artistic and financial success, has essentially been out of public circulation since then. The commemorative DVD has been rereleased in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington and to acquaint a new audience both in the United States and throughout the world with an unforgettable chapter of history. It uses only original newsreel and other primary material, unvarnished and unretouched.
At this showing we will be showing half of the film, about 1 1/2 hours.
