Blood, sweat and tears in a bottle
SUWANEE- Forget about swirling, sniffing, and sipping. "Harvest," the next film in Suwanee's Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, takes a look at the back-breaking manual labor and 2 a.m. pickings that go into harvesting grapes and making wine. The feature-length documentary to be shown at 7 p.m. Tuesday, November 12, at Movie Tavern, follows five family wineries in Sonoma County, California, during the 2011 harvest, which turned out to be the worst in that region in 50 years.
Attendees will have an opportunity to interact with filmmaker John Beck, who spends his time directing and producing documentaries, shooting promotional videos, and writing as a freelance journalist. The winner of numerous film festival awards, Beck was born in Nashville but now lives in the San Francisco Bay area.
Tickets are $6 each and available at Movie Tavern, 2855 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road, or online at movietavern.com. Suwanee’s independent film series will continue with three additional films to be shown in February, March, and April.
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.
