Libraries and Movies Picts posted

Steve Fesenmaier writes "If you couldn't make it to the West Virginia Library Association's Spring Fling this year, you missed one of the best two-hours on libraries and movies. Filmmakers and librarians discussed how libraries can help make local history films; WV's leading playwright Jean Battlo talked about making a new version of WV's most famous "lost film," about Smilin Sid Hatfield, famous from the "Matewan Massacre;" Mari-Lynn Evans showed clips from her $2 million PBS series on Appalachia that will be aired this January; and environmentalist filmmaker Robert Gates showed his just-completed film on the effects of mountaintop removal, "Mucked."
