Southland of the Heart Screening

When: Tue., March 27, 6:40 p.m. 2012

The Chatham County Arts Council celebrates North Carolina's active filmmaking culture in its Sustainable Cinema series, which features films involving producers, directors, subjects and locations in North Carolina. This month's offering is Southland of the Heart, a coming-of-age story shot entirely in the state—mostly in Hillsborough and Durham. Jennifer Evans plays a troubled teen who ditches her small town for the vague promise of something, anything, on the open road. When a terminally ill friend joins her, they head east together for a final look at the ocean, encountering misadventures and learning life lessons along the way. Evans, who has taken the local stage in Little Green Pig's Glass among other productions, is a name to remember as one of North Carolina's rising stars. The film is written and directed by Todd Tinkham, whose Tinkham Town Productions is based in Chapel Hill. The original soundtrack includes music by Mary Johnson Rockers and Rich Bartlett, Andi Morgan, Davis Stillson, Hope Marasco and The String Machine. Live music from the soundtrack begins at 6:40 p.m.; film starts at 7 p.m.; tickets $5 general, $3 students; —Chris Vitiello

Price: $5
