Plaza Theatre to Screen Film About KKK's Presence in Stone Mountain
"Out of Stone," directed by Stephen Grum, will be among the films shown during the Atlanta Film Festival.
The Atlanta Film Festival will include a selection of shorts set in and around Atlanta, including the true-life story of an autistic woman who plays a tuba in Little Five Points for change and a documentary looking back at Ku Klux Klan activity in Stone Mountain.
According to the festival's Facebook page, the block of short films called "This is Atlanta" will be screened at 5 p.m. on the festival's opening day, March 15.
The film about the Klan, "Out of Stone," is directed by Stephen Grum. Here is the description on Youtube:
Out of Stone tells the story of Stone Mountain, GA, a small community not far from Atlanta, that was the center of the largest Ku Klux Klan revival during the 20th century. Though it would seem to be a place of racial hatred and discrimination, the citizens of Stone Mountain tell a different story.
The festival will include a screening of family friendly animated works, feature-length films, documentary shorts, lectures and more.
