St Simons: Surviving Success and Conrack

St Simons: Surviving Success and Conrack. Celebrate St. Simons with these two films. St. Simons: Surviving Success is a short documentary made by George Crain and Lance Lipman, who hope the film will inspire and challenge viewers to become more involved in preserving the island’s charm and character. After seeing the documentary, the 1973 film Conrack, directed by Martin Ritt, will be shown. Based on the writer Pat Conroy’s memoir, The Water is Wide, it’s about his difficult days as a teacher in the late 60s on a remote island off the coast of South Carolina. The idealistic young Conroy (Jon Voight) finds a largely illiterate population of black children, ill-equipped for life in the outside world; he determines to help them, combining love, energy, and sheer imagination in an extraordinary effort to pique their burgeoning interest in life off-island. Conrack was filmed on St. Simons and in Brunswick, using many local residents as extras. Both films are in English and there are no subtitles. PLEASE NOTE: it will start at 6:30 p.m.
