RETURN TO "SPOON RIVER", THE MOVIE

Based on Spoon River Anthology by Edgar Lee Masters, this film by Francesco Conversano and Nene Grignaffini is presented by Cindy Sinclair and John Stiltz at The Arlee Theater, 139 S. Main Street, Mason City, Illinois on  October 7, 2017 at 2:00 PM   Admission is $3.00 per person.   

This is a documentary type movie that was filmed in black and white in Menard and Fulton County by an Italian Film crew during 2014 using local resident "actors" from the Petersburg and Lewistown area.  The movie was filmed with English as the main language and for the European viewing areas subtitles were added. It has been shown in Italy and at the Torino Film Festival.  

You won't want to miss this viewing as it brings a totally new understanding of the Spoon River Anthology using the creativity of an award winning film crew from Italy.  You will also have a chance to see your friends or possibly relatives as cast members and most likely have an opportunity to get their autographs.   

The characters in Edgar Lee Masters' Spoon River Anthology, published in 1915, bore striking similarities to real personalities in Lewistown and Petersburg, where Masters spent his formative years.
