Sahkanaga is a fictionalized account of a true event in which a rural Georgia town's recently deceased were found rotting in the woods after the local crematorium failed to fulfill its responsibilities. The film's writer/director, John Henry Summerour, is from the area - his father is a pastor there - and he used the film and the filmmaking process to help the town process their grief.
Summerour will be present for a post-screening Q&A. This screening is being held in partnership with Dr. William Roozeboom's "Grief, Loss, Death, and Dying" class.
Seating is free, limited and open, available on a first-come, first-seated basis.
Coffee and a light desert reception will be part of this event.
