Directors of the award winning indie film “Dryland” will be in attendance Wednesday at a showing at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre.
Awarded Best Feature Documentary at the 2014 Ellensburg Film Festival, and Best Feature Documentary by a Northwest Filmmaker at the 2014 Eugene International Film Festival, “Dryland” raises questions about the need to preserve and sustain family farms and reinvigorate small towns that are dependent on agriculture. The film’s directors, Sue Arbuthnot and Richard Wilhelm of Portland, Oregon Arts Commission Media Arts Fellowship recipients, will be present to answer questions after the screening.
The 62-minute film will show at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 18 at the center, 508 S. Main Street in Moscow. Admission is $6 general, $4 for Moscow Co-op owners and students. The Co-op is sponsoring the showing.
In the movie, Josh Knodel and best friend Matt Miller strive to win the Lind Combine Demolition Derby, save their town, and preserve the legacy of their families’ Eastern Washington wheat farms.
