Film premier at library tonight

Independent filmmaker Jay Craven will be at the Jamestown library tonight, Aug. 23, at 7 p.m. to introduce his film, "Disappearances," in its Rhode Island premiere.

Based on the award-winning novel by Howard Frank Mosher, the film is a spellbinding tale of high-stakes whiskey smuggling, a family's mysterious past, and a young boy's rite of passage. The film stars Kris Kristofferson, Genevieve Bujold, and 15-yearold Charlie McDermott in a performance that has garnered much praise.

On Friday, Aug. 24, Craven will conduct a screen-writing workshop for teens from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. also at the library.

These free programs are funded by the Friends of Jamestown Library. For more information, visit the library at 26 North Main Rd. or call 423-7280.
