Ahead of Time shows in Madison, GA

It was a picture perfect day in historic Madison GA yesterday. I enjoyed walking around the charming town and stopped into Tequila Express for an early dinner of Mexican food. Great, fresh ingredients!

The screening was held in the beautiful vintage auditorium of the cultural center. The tongue-in-groove original wooden ceiling and carved wooden columns provided spectacular acoustics. The sound and picture of my film was excellent.

I enjoyed the lively Q&A after the film. Especially lively was the conversation which continued in the reception. One small section of my film deals with democrats and republicans in the 1940s and that prompted an animated political discussion between a few members of the audience. Our group was composed of 5 Democrats and one good natured Republican! I was very interested to find out more about how the traditionally Democratic South changed over time.
Many thanks to Dina Glardon for her wonderful work in promoting the screening and the lovely reception after the film.

This was on the road from Madison GA to Orangeburg, SC. Cotton fields, which I had never seen before!
