"Willow Creek" and "Someone Else's Memory"

Friday, April 29, 2016 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Join photographer and Longwood University alumnus Alex Grabiec at 6 pm on Friday, April 29th, for a discussion of the film Willow Creek and its connection to his interest in American landscape and legend. In his artist talk, Someone Else’s Memory, Grabiec will discuss his work in photography, which features locations of Bigfoot sightings throughout the US, themes of locale, dissemination of information, memory, and a skeptical examination of authentic experience. Grabiec will also introduce the film and facilitate discussion following the screening.

The Longwood Cabin, located at 1401 Johnston Drive, Farmville, VA 23901. Traveling from town by East Third Street, turn right at the intersection by Sunchase Cinema 8 onto Longwood Avenue, then turn left onto Johnston drive followed by a right turn onto a gravel road that leads to the cabin.

Campfire-themed refreshments will be served, and a free shuttle will operate between the Greenwood Library on Longwood’s campus and Longwood Cabin beginning at 5:30 pm. The event is made possible in part through the very generous support of the Walter J. Payne Foundation, the TR June H. Guthrie Trust, and the Rock Foundation.
