Join The Arts Council of Central Louisiana on Monday, November 6th at 7:00 PM for a screening of the EMMY winning film, Little
This is the 3rd film in our 2023-2024 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers Series.
Tickets can be purchased at the door. Sharon Preston-Folta comes forward in the documentary after living closely in the shadows of her father, unveiling a family and their relationship that was kept entirely invisible for more than 50 years. The story is told almost exclusively from the first-person perspective of a daughter who was loved and cared for her by her father until the end of his life. The documentary is based on Preston-Folta’s memoir of the same title, detailing how Sharon, the product of a two-decade love affair between Satchmo and Harlem dancer Lucille ‘Sweets’ Preston, had no option but to harbor and conceal her identity for decades before making it public. It resonates with complex themes of race, father/daughterhood, family, identity, and single-parent households. Made possible by a partnership with the National Endowment of the Arts, the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is a program of South Arts who has selected Little Satchmo to tour Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana this November.
