Sahkanaga comes home

Sahkanaga opened Friday to lots of interest and great audiences for a week-long run in downtown Chattanooga.  According to the Majestic cinema staff, on Friday it drew the largest crowds of any of the movies playing there.  All of the main actors and writer/director/producer John Henry Summerour attended that evening and so did some of the crew.  The Q&A was lively, interesting, informative.  And then Saturday was more of the same.  Interested, attentive audiences.  Thoughtful Q&A.  More good energy.  The energy of satisfaction, pride, healing.

I’ll write more later as I reflect on a brim-full, rich time.  But here are some photos to give you a taste of what’s been going on this weekend.

Coming home has been wonderful.
