ATC to Host Premiere for Documentary Screening

(March 16, 2017, Aiken, SC)— Aiken Technical College will host the Aiken premiere of Reconstructing Hawthorne on Tuesday, March 28 in the amphitheater (700 building). This event is free and open to the public.

A reception will be held at 6:30 p.m. followed by the documentary screening at 6:45 p.m.

Hawthorne was one of several communities once located in the area now occupied by the Savannah River Site. Although less populated than the towns of Dunbarton and Ellenton, Hawthorne was just as impacted by the times.

Reconstructing Hawthorne gives viewers an inside look into the community through historical documents, photos and the memories of those who once lived there.

The film’s producer, George Wingard, will lead a producer’s talk immediately following the screening. Wingard is the program coordinator for Savannah River Archaeological Research Program (SRARP) under the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology department at the University of South Carolina. SRARP is located on the Savannah River Site.

The event comes during the College’s Spirit Week and the screening is themed “Celebrating Our Community Spirit”.

“We are excited to partner with George Wingard for the Aiken premiere of Reconstructing Hawthorne. This documentary tells a very important story—one that if it wasn’t for chance, may have been lost forever,” said ATC President Dr. Forest Mahan. “As part of our Spirit Week, it is a great way for us to come together in the spirit of community to learn more about our local history.”
