A blog discussing and documenting the making of and news on the a documentary film about poet and writer Carl Sandburg by Paul Bonesteel.
This film has been six years in the making and has been released for film festival distribution.
A big thanks to everyone who helped make the Asheville, North Carolina premiere of The Day Carl Sandburg Died such a success, screening before more than four hundred people. Thank you Neal Reed (Fine Arts Theatre), Laura Hope-Gill (of Wordfest), Neeley Dawson (Bonesteel Films) for working so hard to make it happen. Both audiences were great, and it reminded me of why I do this... when lights go down and the story unfolds on screen, for me that's where the magic of filmmaking really happens. The comments and questions after about Sandburg and the film encourage me that the film has a powerful relevance to today's social and political climate. I've felt for some time that Sandburg's story and work would resonate with people today and it's great to see and hear that happen. Check back here often to see news about future screenings and other press!
