Quiet Heroes Film Screening


FRIDAY, November 2nd, 7:30-9:30 PM

JNSA, 739 Greene Street, Augusta GA

Join us for a film screening of “Quiet Heroes” followed by Q&A with film subjects Dr. Kristen Reis and Maggie Snyder. Produced in partnership with the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Films, Westobou, and the National Endowment for the Arts, and sponsored by AARP.

Film Synopsis: In Salt Lake City, Utah, the religious monoculture severely complicated the AIDS crisis, where patients received no support from—or were cast into exile by—the political, religious, and medical communities. Further, Mormon culture encouraged gay men to marry women and have a family to cure themselves of their “affliction,” counsel which led to secret affairs and accidental marital transmissions of HIV. In the entire state and intermountain region there was only one doctor to serve all HIV/AIDS patients. This is the story of her fight to save the lives of a maligned population everyone else seemed willing to just let die.

Tickets are $5 at the door.

Road to Race Day

Screen Shot 2018-08-23 at 5.52.02 PM.png

In partnership with the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Films, Westobou, the National Endowment of the Art, the Jessye Norman School of the Arts is proud to present Road to Race Day

With Road to Race Day, Producer/Director Cynthia Hill (Private Violence, A Chef’s Life) digs deep into stock-car racing’s marrow with unprecedented access to NASCAR’s most-winning team, Hendrick Motorsports. Holding the most titles in any major American professional sport in the last 30 years, Road to Race Day explores the lives of drivers, pit crews, engineers, mechanics, owners, hard-core fans, and goes into plot lines that convey the importance of communication and commitment, and how much losing it really takes to win.

The screening will take place from 7:30-9:30 PM and will be followed by a Q&A with Director Cynthia Hill.
