We are kicking off our get togethers with an Arkansas cult classic: The Legend of Boggy Creek.

Is there a monster stalking the residents of Fouke, Arkansas? Locals claim to have seen the mysterious creature in the surrounding swamps, and believe it is responsible for several animal deaths. As witnesses recall their encounters with the seven-foot-tall, red-haired beast, their story ceases to be merely a legend and becomes a dangerous, frightening reality.

The wildly successful, innovative film debut of Hampton, AR native and former ad man Charles B. Pierce, The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972) used documentary techniques to tell its tale of Arkansan folklore. Making the most of its non-professional actors, shoestring budget, and eerie natural scenery, the film is a triumph of spooky atmosphere that continues to be discovered and rediscovered by cult cinema enthusiasts. 

After the screening there will be time for questions and discussion with guest speaker Dr. Felipe Pruneda.

Also as an extra treat Shambala Vegan Food Truck will be parked outside starting at 4pm.
