THE MOUNTAIN MINOR
Directed by Dale Farmer
Running time: 1:29
This film will screen on Day 2 (Friday, 8/24/18) starting at 5:00 PM.
In the 1920s-1950s, millions of Appalachians left their homes in the mountains and migrated to urban Midwestern centers in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Ohio. The Mountain Minor is the story of a life-worn Charlie Abner, a generation later, as he struggles with leaving his present life and family in Cincinnati, Ohio to return to the Kentucky Mountain home and musical heritage that once defined him. The story is partially told in flashbacks to depression era Eastern Kentucky, when Charlie’s parents face the difficult decision to leave the way of life they know and move to Ohio for employment and better opportunities.
Mr. Farmer is attending the festival.
We're hoping that some of the cast and crew from the film will also be able to join him.
