'Bending Sticks' next flick for Suwanee film series
SUWANEE - "Bending Sticks: The Sculpture of Patrick Dougherty," the next film to be screened through the City of Suwanee's participation in the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, will be shown Tuesday, October 8. The film will begin at 7 p.m. at Movie Tavern; individual tickets are $6 and include an opportunity to interact with filmmakers.
Bending Sticks celebrates the 25-year career of internationally renowned environmental artist Patrick Dougherty, whose projects invite collaboration and engage communities in the making and viewing of his very public art. The film follows the artist and his collaborators over a year as they transform piles of sticks into energetic lines and exuberant forms in five different communities.
Bending Sticks was created by award-winning filmmaker, cinematographer, and editor Kenny Dalesheimer and award-winning producer Penny Maunsell. Dalesheimer, who has a master's degree in anthropology from Duke University, creates locally inspired documentaries, produces nonprofit videos, and teaches youth video workshops. Maunsell travels all over the country and internationally making recruitment and fundraising films and videos.
The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is funded, in part, by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
