“In its images, its story, its performances, its purpose, and its theme, SAHKANAGA is as beautiful a film as I have seen in a very long time.”
Great review from Reel Georgia!
John Henry Summerour contributes to the Southern Circuit Blog as this Sahka-journey continues.
Analysis from author and Walker County native Jordan M. Scoggins.
CL’s Gabe Wardell interviews John Henry Summerour about SAHKANAGA and says, “It is an ambitious, accomplished debut that hands Summerour the Southern Gothic art house mantle David Gordon Green left behind when he jumped the Pineapple Express to the multiplex.”
“A haunting piece of fact-based Southern Gothic free of histrionics, SAHKANAGA is a thoughtful, atmospherically heavy study of reactions to an inexplicably inhumane act. It’s serious, and welcome, grass-roots art.”
John Henry Summerour writes about getting “The Call” from the Screenwriters Colony.
“Cinematographer Damian Ward revels in the beauty of the Georgian landscape: its verdant forests, pacific creeks, sunlit fields, rustic train tracks, foggy cemeteries. His eye for composition lends dignity and grace to the place, which the story mostly doesn’t. Though in fairness the road to peace and forgiveness is a long one, and ultimately it’s a road the townspeople are able to start on. You get a sense that this is what Summerour admires about them—that they at least have the potential to be as beautiful as the landscapes within which they live.”
