Footcandle Film Society was founded in 2008 and has provided the citizens of Catawba County with an opportunity to view and discuss films that have traditionally not been available or shown in theaters in the area. The film society has shown at least one film per month since its inception, with the films ranging from documentaries, foreign narratives, and award-nominated movies of all genres. The screenings all include moderated discussions of the films. See www.Footcandle.org for more information!
The Footcandle Film Society will be screening the documentary MAKING MONTGOMERY CLIFT on Mon., Oct. 28th at the Newton-Conover Auditorium near downtown Newton. Showtime is 7:00pm. All tickets are $5.00 at the door.
About the film: (Documentary) Montgomery Clift was one of the most influential actors in the history of cinema, bucking traditions on and off screen, but countless biographies have reduced him to labels like tragically self-destructive and tormented. Now, nephew Robert Clift and Hillary Demmon rigorously examine the flawed narratives that have come to define Monty's legacy. Drawing on interviews with family and loved ones and a rich collection of unreleased archival materials from Monty and his brother, Brooks Clift, this fresh portrait of the actor's passions, contributions and commitment to living and working in his own way gives one of Hollywood's underappreciated legends his due.
