We cover politics and government in Missouri. We don’t usually cover film festivals. Unless government and politics somehow gets into the mix.
So, I found myself attending a Show Me Social Justice International Film Festival event at a Warrensburg movie theater.
The event took place right before a festival screening of Winter’s Bone, a film about Missouri (That’s like saying that Titanic was a film about a holiday cruise…).
The theatrical trailer for Winter’s Bone:
So I got to meet Dee Wallace, talk with people about the festival and Denny Hoskins’ (r-noun, verb, CPA) war on local economic development, and I also learned that Denny Hoskins (r) had issued a press release today taking credit for sinking the grant funding for the film festival.
Yeah, I know, an obvious public relations coup for someone who’s really concerned about local economic development.
Putting Johnson Countians back to work is my first priority.
