Free Movie Night: Where The Lilies Bloom
The film is an adaptation of a renowned novel by Bill and Vera Cleaver. "Where the Lilies Bloom" was produced by Robert B. Radnitz and directed by William A. Graham in Watauga, Avery, and Ashe counties. It features scenes in Blowing Rock, Boone, and Banner Elk, North Carolina. Children from local elementary schools were recruited to act in the film. The movie is about a family of Appalachian children who live together in the backwoods so that they can stay together after the death of their widower father. The Luther family are poor sharecroppers living in the mountains of North Carolina. The father, Roy Luther (Rance Howard) is sickly and asks the second eldest daughter, Mary Call (Julie Gholson) to take over his role of father when he passes on. He instructs her not to tell anyone when he dies as doctors, undertakers and preachers "just take money." When the authorities would discover he is dead, the children would be split up and put in foster homes since none of them are of legal age. Their landlord Kiser Pease, (Harry Dean Stanton), is interested in marrying the eldest daughter Devola (Jan Smithers). Roy Luther won't allow the marriage and makes Mary Call promise she won't let it happen after he dies. To top the night off, our special guest on Friday will be Christine Sita Dave. Sita is the founder of EDGE, a nonprofit to support the education of rural girls at a school in Odisha, India. Light snacks, popcorn, and drinks will be provided. Bring your family and friends and join us to celebrate the spirit of the Appalachian mountains and its people at the Wisdom Resource Center!
