Rundles' New Docudrama "Sons & Daughters of Thunder" Premieres March 23 at Garfield Theatre in Cincinnati
Thomas Alan Taylor plays firebrand Theodore Weld in Sons & Daughters of Thunder.
On this 23rd day of November we honor abolitionist and Lane rebel Theodore Weld's 215th birthday by announcing the Cincinnati Premiere of Sons & Daughters of Thunder is set for Saturday, March 23, 2019 at the downtown Garfield Theatre, 719 Race Street. The docudrama, produced by Mid-America Emmy-nominated filmmakers Kelly & Tammy Rundle of Fourth Wall Films, and Kent Hawley, will screen at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. A Q&A with the filmmakers and others will follow the movie.
This special Cincinnati premiere event is sponsored by the Friends of the Harriet Beecher Stowe House.
"We are very excited to show Sons & Daughters of Thunder in the city where the true story took place 185 years ago," said producer Tammy Rundle. "Attendees of the film premiere will also have the opportunity to visit historic sites in Cincinnati with connections to the story, including the Harriet Beecher Stowe House, the last remaining structure on what was Lane Theological Seminary grounds where abolitionist Theodore Weld and his 'Lane Rebels' made history with the first public discussions of the abolition of slavery."
The Rundles are also working on a new documentary entitled “Harriet Beecher Stowe: Her Transformative Ohio Years.” Friends of the Harriet Beecher Stowe House is the fiscal sponsor on the project. Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) was an author best known for her popular anti-slavery novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, who was born and died in Connecticut, but lived in Cincinnati between 1832 and 1850.
Fourth Wall Films is an award-winning and Regional Emmy® nominated independent film and video production company formerly located in Los Angeles, and now based in the Quad Cities.
