Mary B. Martin School of the Arts will present, as part of the South Arts Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers series, a free screening of Birth of the Living Dead at 7 p.m. in ETSU’s Martha Street Culp Auditorium. A question-and-answer session with filmmakers Rob Kuhns and Esther Cassidy and a reception will follow the screening. Birth of the Living Dead, a new documentary, shows how George Romero gathered an unlikely team of Pittsburghers – policemen, iron workers, teachers, ad-men, housewives and a roller-rink owner – to shoot, with a revolutionary guerrilla, run-and-gun style, his seminal film. The documentary also explores the singular time in history of race riots and events surrounding the Vietnam War. This event is free and open to the public and is part of the South Arts Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers. For information, call 423-439-TKTS (8587) or visit www.etsu.edu/martin.
