Tonight at Cine, the EcoFocus FIlm Festival presents a special event screening of General Orders No. 9. This stunning film from first time writer-director Robert Persons marries experimental filmmaking with an accessible, naturalist sensibility to tell the epic story of the clash between nature and man’s progress in the American South. Told entirely with images, poetry, and music, General Orders No. 9 is unlike any film you have ever seen. A story of maps, dreams, and prayers, it’s one last trip down the rabbit hole before it’s paved over.
