Movie Night at Bass: Win Riley’s Walker Percy
The Greenville Arts Council invites the entire community to come join us in Jake and Freda Stein Hall on September 1, 2011, at 6:30 pm for our fall movie screening, Win Riley’s Walker Percy: A Documentary Film.
New Orleans writer and producer, Win Riley is an award winning director. His first documentary film, “Walker Anderson: Realizations of an Artist” won several awards and was broadcasted on PBS. After three years in the making, Riley released his latest project this year, Walker Percy: A Documentary Film based off the life and ideas of Southern author Walker Percy.
As a writer and philosopher, Percy’s work reflects questions like “who are we?” “where do we come from?” and “where are we going?”. Join us as we explore and celebrate the ideas and philosophical contributions of novelist and one of Greenville’s very own. This one hour documentary tells the story of Percy’s life with archival film, excerpts from Percy’s work, and interviews with family, friends, and scholars.
