Writer/Director John Henry Summerour has a new film entitled Saultopaul that will be screening in competition at the Atlanta Film Festival on Saturday, April 9th, at 2:30pm. The screening will take place at 7 Stages in Little Five Points and you can find tickets here.
Saultopaul follows one year in the life of an 1100-acre farm in the Georgia mountains, populated by Longhorn cattle, gigantic rock sculptures and Carl, a self-styled intellectual cowboy in his 80th year of life. This 24-minute documentary portrait is a Chekhovian meditation on the passage of time, and one family’s growing awareness that nothing stays the same. Stories of the past intersect with conversations about the future as three generations gather to reflect on this special place, and the profound impact of nature on each human life.
