Atlanta-based documentary filmmaker George King will screen excerpts from his work-in-progress documentary on visual artist and musician Lonnie Holley. King has been filming Holley’s life and work for over 20 years. The documentary is currently in the editing phase of the project. Filmmaker King, Lonnie Holley, and manager Matt Arnett will be in attendance. Your participation and feedback will help King move the project to completion.

This project has been supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, Alabama Humanities Foundation, Alabama State Council for the Arts, Massey Charitable Trust, Judith Alexander Foundation, Lubo Fund, Goodrich Foundation, and an Indiegogo campaign.
