When: May 29-June 4, 4 p.m. 2015
Call of the Ancient Mariner, a new film by filmmaker David Weintraub will return to the Terrace Theater. The documentary wowed Charleston audiences in March when it played to packed houses and won Best of the Festival at the Terrace Charleston Film Festival. Mariner tells the story of man’s love affair with sea turtles that has existed since the dawn of time. Much of the film was shot in the Charleston area and many Charleston-based sea turtle patrols are supporting the project. In addition to offering audiences a chance to see a film that Terrace Theater owner Paul Brown has called “compelling” and “truly resonating with the audience”, the Saturday, May 30 4 p.m. showing will be followed by a DVD release party featuring music, light finger foods, drinks and a chance to pick up a copy of the DVD or film T-shirt. Director Weintraub will be on hand to sign copies of the DVD and to discuss the film. A portion of the proceeds from T-shirt sales will go to the South Carolina Aquarium’s expansion plans for the Sea Turtle Hospital. Call of the Ancient Mariner is co-sponsored by the South Carolina Aquarium, Georgia Sea Turtle Center, Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy, Loggerhead Marinelife Center, and the North Carolina Arboretum.
