Cinema on the Bayou Film Society is pleased to announce the 13th Cinema on the Bayou Film Festival’s
opening night film, RIFLES & ROSARY BEADS, which will make its World Premiere screening on Wednesday, January 24th, 2018, at the Acadiana Center for the Arts. Doors open at 6:30 pm, and the film screens at 7:00 pm, followed by a discussion with Nashville-based
filmmakers Joshua Britt and Neilson Hubbard and singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier, who will perform songs from her upcoming album of the same name. The
evening will end with a gala
reception with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Tickets are $15.00 and can be purchased at www.cinemaonthebayou.com or at the door on the night of the event.
Mary Gauthier, who is originally from Louisiana and is now based in Nashville, has been included in a class of such greats as Kris Kristofferson, John
Prine and Bob Dylan for “her razor-sharp eye for detail and her commitment to unsentimental self-reflection” in her songs. This commitment is reflected
in her latest work with wounded veterans as part of the Songwriting With Soldiers program that led to her tenth album, RIFLES & ROSARY BEADS, scheduled
to be released on January 26, 2018. The film tells the story of Mary’s experience in songwriting
with these veterans and their spouses – a life-changing experience for them and for Mary, who sees working with veterans in this way as a calling. Mary
will be here to answer questions and play songs.
