Ashley Maynor's New Documentary Showing in Blacksburg

Virginia Tech film professor Ashley Maynor's (above) half-hour documentory "For Memory's Sake" plays Saturday (March 27) at 3 p.m. and the following Monday at 7 p.m. at Blacksburg's Lyric Theatre and I want you to be there. Ashley and her husband/producer Paul Harrill are the First Couple of Film in this region. Paul won a Perry F. Kendig Award (Arts Council's prestigious award) last year and they are both quite talented.

Director Ashley's short film "investigates the life and work of Angela Singer, a Southern homemaker who has taken an average of a dozen photos a day for the last 35 years, compiling a mysterious and strange archive of over 150,000 photographs of her daily life."

The movie is free, but it's not for kids. The content would be a bit challenging for them.

You can take a look at the trailer for the documentary here.
