"Sahkanaga" coming to Atlanta on December 7th!

John Henry Summerour's "Sahkanaga" is an electric retelling of the Tri-State Crematory incident that jolted Northwest Georgia in 2002. After playing at film festivals across the globe, taking home a bevy of prizes, including the Audience Award at the 2011 Atlanta Film Festival, "Sahkanaga" comes back to Atlanta for a long-awaited theatrical run.

Following its world premiere in Atlanta, the film showed at the Rome International Film Festival, won the Oglethorpe Award for Excellence in Georgia Cinema from the Georgia Film Critics Association and toured the Southeast as part of the Southern Circuit - Tour of Independent Filmmakers, which included stops in Savannah, Thomasville and Winder. In October, "Sahkanaga" played a one-week run in Chattanooga.

The film starts at the Plaza Theatre in Atlanta next Friday, December 7th and runs for one week only. Make sure you go see it! Reel Georgia wasn't around yet during the 2011 Atlanta Film Festival, but you can bet I will soon be posting a proper review of "Sahkanaga." After all, it did rank as my #13 film of 2011.
