Chris Eska - Alexandria

The latest update from filmmaker Chris Eska, touring his film The Retrieval on the Southern Circuit:

Alexandria, Louisiana

Beautiful weather returned as I drove north to Alexandria for the final night of the tour. The film played on a brand new projector at the largest venue during the entire tour, the Coughlin-Saunders Performing Arts Center. It was a thoughtful audience with lots of discussion and comments both during the Q&A and afterward in the lobby. There were two special audience members in attendance: David and Nicole Holcombe. The Holcombe’s hosted me in their beautiful art-filled home, and we enjoyed several interesting conversations and taught each other about our respective arts. David is a playwright, and Nicole makes many types of art, most prolifically with Slavic-inspired intricately-decorated eggs. Thanks to everyone who made this tour a success!
