The Leelanau Community Cultural Center is hosting the screening of Starbright Media’s new feature-length documentary entitled “Young Hemingway & His Enduring Eden”. The film will be shown at the Old Art Building in Leland on January 19, 2018 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $10 adults / $5 students.
The 100-minute documentary –– was recently completed to coincide with the installation and dedication of the young Hemingway statue in Petoskey’s Pennsylvania Park on July 21, Hemingway’s birthday.
The documentary features the commentary of some of the country’s top Hemingway scholars and writers, many of whom were interviewed for the documentary in Petoskey, Bay View, Horton Bay, and at Windemere, the Hemingway family cottage on Walloon Lake. Production and editing of the documentary has taken place locally over the past five years. Starbright Media is based in downtown Petoskey and it is producing the program in association with Pierpont Productions of Harbor Springs.
Writer-Producer George Colburn claims “this documentary will give northern Michigan its rightful – and prominent – place in the story of Ernest Hemingway’s life and literature.” To illustrate this point, the program documents the involvement of many local residents “who keep alive the Hemingway spirit here,” Colburn added.
