Last week, we aired part of our conversation with the executive director and one of the founders of the Arkansas Cinema Society as the organization was getting ready to present the screening of the film Minari at the 112 Drive-In theater. Today, we have more from our conversation with Kathryn Tucker about the society's expansion beyond Central Arkansas.
The Arkansas Cinema Society began in Central Arkansas, but is establishing a presence around the state, including in Northwest Arkansas. Kathryn Tucker, a co-founder of the group, explains a scheduled film screening this week is just the beginning.
The new film, Molta Bella, directed by Alexander Jeffery, was created in Sicily in 18 days on a small budget. He explains how the process worked. The Arkansas Cinema Society will host a screening of the movie Friday night at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville Friday night. We also learn just a bit about a dining delicacy native to El Doraro, Arkansas.
