Maryland Morning Screen Test June 29: We’re This Many!
On Wednesday, June 29, the Maryland Morning Screen Test turns one!
It all started with filmmaker Eric Dyer on June 30, 2010. Since then, our monthly film series has been exploring Maryland’s very deep film talent pool, from the Robinson Brothers‘ stylish thrillers to Matt Porterfield’s quiet portraits to Catherine Pancake’s environmental documentaries, and much more.
This June 29, at The Windup Space in Baltimore’s Station North neighborhood, Maryland Morning Screen Test hosts Michael Lawrence. His film Bach and Friends is the latest in a string of over twenty documentaries he’s either written, produced, directed, or scored.
As usual, Tom Hall will start by interviewing Lawrence about his career in front of a live audience. Then we’ll screen some of his work and take questions from the audience. That all gets going at 7pm.
But we hope you’ll come at 5pm for a happy hour to help us celebrate our first year of celebrating Maryland filmmakers. We’ve invited former Screen Test guests, as well as other folks from around Maryland’s film scene. There will be cake.
And if you’re really feeling filmy, stick around after the Screen Test. At 9pm, Transition Baltimore and Evolver host a screening of “In Transition,” a film about the movement to respond to peak oil and climate change.
Maryland Morning will air Tom’s interview with Michael Lawrence on Friday, July 1. You can hear all of our Screen Test segments, and see photographs of the events taken by the talented Christopher Moore, here.
Hope to see you Wednesday. Spread the word!
