Screening Of Hard Way Home Is At Chattanooga Film Festival

Documentary Film Captures Personal Journey Through Appalachian Trail

Thursday, March 27, 2014

A screening of the documentary film Hard Way Home will take place Friday, April 4, at the Chattanooga Film Festival. 

Hard Way Home explores a 28-year-old woman’s journey to let go of her haunted past by undertaking a challenge: thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. Thousands of hikers attempt this hike every year but fewer than 20 percent actually complete it.

On her six-month journey to beat these odds, filmmaker Kori Feener covered more than 2,000 miles, tested her physical and mental capabilities, and connected with like-minded travelers.  She engages the audience to join her on this life-changing experience through personal storytelling and cinema verite style of shooting. By focusing on basic survival needs and learning to appreciate the beauty of the world around her, Ms. Feener ultimately opens a new chapter in her life.

Everyone is welcome to attend.  Producer Kori Feener will be on-site to answer questions.  General admission tickets to the festival cost $10. Additional information on tickets is available online at www.chattanoogafilmfest.com.

The screening will be from 3:15-5:15 p.m. at Majestic 12 Cinema, 311 Broad St.

Roy Exum: Thanksgiving Conversations

I am not predicting this will happen but I have known it to occur – in the middle of the Thanksgiving feast there will come a lull in the conversation and you can save the day if you’ll immediately look at the person to your right and ask, “What is the smartest thing you ever heard somebody say?” It is an easy thing, because we all love wisdom, and the ploy comes to mind because ...
