Lights, camera, etc.

Posted By on Fri, May 16, 2008 at 2:20 PM

Slow day. I think I'm going to play hooky and catch the 4 p.m. Little Rock Film Festival showing of "Silhouette City," the documentary on religious extremism that features people and places of Arkansas interest, including the Covenant, Sword and Arm of the Lord encampment and the leader of that Christian militia group, Kerry Noble, who went to prison after a raid of the CSA's North Arkansas compound in 1985. Mike Huckabee makes an appearance in the movie, too. Noble will participate in a panel on the movie at 6:30 p.m. Sunday at the Chamber of Commerce following a 5 p.m. screening.

This weekend, look for an essay on-line on the topic by Michael Wilson, (I had his name wrong in the original post) a Little Rock Central and Hendrix graduate, who wrote and edited the film and who also will be on Sunday's panel.

If you haven't been doing it already, you'll want to turn to Lindsey Millar's Rock Candy blog for this and other continuing coverage of the Film Festival. Heckuva turnout Thursday night for "War Eagle, Arkansas."
