It's very exciting that the Franklin International Indie Film Festival in Franklin, Tennessee selected and showed "Helen LaFrance Memories" on August 18th among their 2019 winners. The film, co-produced by Three Palms Productions and Bruce Shelton. Bruce was on hand with the other winners for a Q & A following the films. Directed by Martin Scott Grissom and shot by Andrew Spence, it is a fresh look into the renowned self-taught African American artist. Helen was born November 2, 1919 in Mayfield, Kentucky. That's right, folks. She's 99 years old!
Here's an unedited clip from the documentary, which has been entered into a few other film festivals. And I'll keep you posted on further news developments about Helen.
