SOLOST VIDEO SERIES CELEBRATION
7:30 p.m. South on Main. Free.
An admission: I had not until recently. But after having watched several of the National Magazine Award-winning short videos, I can say that I have been sleeping on these in a major and inexcusable way. These pieces range from, I don’t know, 4-10 minutes? And in those fleeting spans, each one tells a Southern story that is funny or fascinating or illuminating or bizarre or sweetly sad or some mixture thereof.
This event is billed as a celebration of SoLost filmmaker and notable photographer Dave Anderson, who will unveil his newest OA series, SoLit, which I am assuming will be related to literature and not to being super drunk. Guests include SoLost Editor Jonathan Childs and several folks profiled in the series, including Augusta’s Jimmy Rhodes, the mortician, magician and politician who was the subject of the most recent installment, which is, of course, excellent. This will be some good times right here.
