Moving Images in Mississippi Bicentennial Film Series | "The Reivers"

Thursday, April 26, 2018

6:30 PM

Trustmark Grand Hall

For more than a century the landscapes and stories of Mississippi have inspired filmmakers. Beginning in Natchez in 1914, cinematic storytellers have used our backdrops to enhance and authenticate their vision. And the imagination of our own writers and the drama of our own history have been brought to life by directors of influence, insight, and power.

On the fourth Thursday and Friday of each month, the Moving Images in Mississippi Bicentennial Film Series will celebrate cinema and Mississippi. Curated and introduced by longtime Mississippi film commissioner Ward Emling, the series will include panels and one-on-one filmmaker interviews to discuss the films in cinematic, cultural, and historical context.

This event is free and open to the public. Films shown subject to change due to panelist availability.
