FILM SYNOPSIS 

SHERMAN’S MARCH

Dir. Ross McElwee | Documentary Feature | USA | 1985 | 2h 37m

Thursday, January 9, 2020

Documentarian Ross McElwee originally set out to make a travelogue of sorts tracing General William T. Sherman's infamous scorched-earth march through the Confederacy in the latter stages of the Civil War. Instead, haunted by a recent breakup with a girlfriend, McElwee ends up documenting his progress – or lack thereof – in starting a new relationship. His journey then becomes one of self-reflection and self-discovery rather than a historical/sociological exploration.

This screening is a part of the series Place Over Time: Perspectives on the South through Film and is free and open to the public thanks to the generous support of The Helis Foundation.

Doors open at 5:30 pm. Limited seating is available on a first come, first seated basis. The screening will be followed by a conversation with director Ross McElwee.

Admission is free and open to the public. Limited seating is available on a first come, first seated basis. Doors open at 5:30 pm
