We are pleased to announce that the Ohio Humanities Sneak Preview of Becoming Harriet Beecher Stowe will be held at Xavier University's Kennedy Auditorium (located in the Michael J. Conaton Learning Commons), 3725 Ledgewood Dr. in Cincinnati, Ohio on Saturday, September 21, 2019, 2PM-3:30PM. The 30-minute documentary film will be followed by a panel discussion with filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle of Fourth Wall Films and other film participants. The program is free to the public and co-sponsored by the Xavier University English Department and the History Department.
"We are very grateful to Dr. John Getz for arranging this special Ohio Humanities sneak preview at Xavier, and to the co-sponsors of this film event," said producer Tammy Rundle. "Xavier University is just five minutes from the Harriet Beecher Stowe House and will provide a great opportunity for audience members to visit the historic site and learn more about Harriet before the program."
Becoming Harriet Beecher Stowe, a new documentary by award-winning and Emmy® nominated filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle, tells the story of the writer’s life in Cincinnati, Ohio and how these life-changing experiences contributed to her best-selling novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Beecher-Stowe lived in Cincinnati between 1832 and 1850, and just after her move to Maine, she adapted her Ohio experiences and anti-slavery sentiment into America’s most influential novel. Kelly Rundle will direct the documentary film.
Becoming Harriet Beecher Stowe is partially funded by a grant from the Ohio Humanities, a State affiliate of The National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed by the film do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or the Ohio Humanities. The historical documentary film project's fiscal sponsor is Friends of the Harriet Beecher Stowe House.
