Oxford American’s SoLost celebration honoring Dave Anderson

solost_logoCome have dinner and join in the SoLost celebration, honoring the Oxford American’s award-winning filmmaker Dave Anderson’s original video series.

SoLost is an off-kilter video journey through the side roads, backrooms, cellars, and psyche of the modern South. Anderson’s artful film shorts are released monthly on OxfordAmerican.org. The series won the 2011 National Magazine Award for Video and was a finalist for the 2013 award. In April, SoLost received a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts to fund the project during 2013–14.

Special guests for the evening include SoLost editor Jonathan Childs and several subjects from the series: David Moore (also known as DayDay MoeMoe), a visionary musician-artist who creates instruments from recycled oddities; Timothy Hursley, the photographer who captured a silo in Hale County, Alabama, almost a million times; and Jimmy Rhodes, a magician, mortician, and former mayor. Anderson will also unveil the debut installment of SoLit, a new series for the Oxford American.

The event will take place at South on Main (1304 Main Street) at 7:30pm.
