Lecture: Special Edition Lunch & Learn with Ben Loeterman

  • Georgia Archives 5800 Jonesboro Road Morrow, GA 30260
Join us for a Special Edition of Lunch & Learn in celebration of Georgia Archives Month. Award-winning documentary filmmaker, Ben Loeterman, will discuss how he transforms archival records into undefinedliving‖ documents through the medium of film. Mr. Loeterman’s films have appeared on the BBC, the Discovery Channel, and such PBS series as Frontline and American Experience. His most recent work, The People v. Leo Frank is a 90-minute documentary about one of the most complex and compelling criminal cases in American history, the 1913 murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan in an Atlanta pencil factory, and the trial and lynching of her accused killer, Leo Frank. Scholar interviews and major dramatic recreations for The People v. Leo Frank were shot on location in Atlanta, and archival records provided the context for much of the film. Lunch & Learn is a free lecture series sponsored by the Friends of Georgia Archives and History. Bring your lunch to enjoy during the lecture.
