Hanceville, Ala. – Wallace State Community College and The Evelyn Burrow Museum present “Fall and Winter” with filmmaker Matthew Anderson as part of the South Arts Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers on campus at the Burrow Center Recital Hall on Thursday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m.

Following a screening of the film, “Fall and Winter,” Anderson and the audience will engage in a discussion about the film and his work as a filmmaker. A reception with the filmmaker will follow. Admission is free.

“Fall and Winter” is an epic and spectacular journey across the U.S. in search of what is causing our unfolding global crisis. Pollution, droughts and diminishing resources now threaten the very engine driving these catastrophes: civilization itself.

This stunning film takes you on a Koyaanisqatsi-style journey, reaching to the past to understand the origins of the catastrophic environmental transitions we now face. Over two years, director Matt Anderson traveled 16,000 miles to document firsthand the environmental destruction and urban wastelands across America. Some of today’s most progressive thinkers, from anthropologists and bio-architects to psychologists and journalists, collectively recreate a story of humanity and the history of Earth, presenting a desperately needed survival guide to make the transition in the coming ecological and psychological crisis.

Matt Anderson is a Canadian filmmaker. After growing up on a small island off the coast of Vancouver he attended Vancouver Film School and subsequently moved to New York to pursue filmmaking. He has directed countless commercials, music videos and short documentaries.

The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is a program of South Arts.
