Screening & Filmmaker Conversation: Anne Rapp’s documentary, “Horton Foote: The Road to Home”
November 1, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm CDT
Writer (“Cookie’s Fortune”, “Dr. T and the Women”) and filmmaker Anne Rapp, along with producers Miguel Alvarez (RTF Assistant Professor) and Jason Wehling, will be joining us for a screening of Rapp’s new documentary feature “Horton Foote: The Road to Home,” which chronicles the creative journey of acclaimed Texas writer Horton Foote through his own eyes and voice at the end of his life. Pulitzer Prize winning playwright and two-time Academy Award winner, Foote was known for his subtle yet deeply-layered and profound storytelling—about family, human connections, struggles, resilience and redemption—primarily set in small-town Texas.
Following the screening, RTF Associate Chair Cindy McCreery will moderate a Q&A with the filmmakers.
