HELEN LAWRENCE MEMORIES DOCUMENTARY CRUSHED IT AT PALM BEACH INTERNATIONAL & MINI MOVIE FESTIVAL DECEMBER 2019
I am thrilled to report that the Three Palms Productions of the Helen LaFrance Memories documentary won three awards----for best documentary film, best feature film and best director Martin Scott! The film festival was held at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida and the film was screened to a cheering audience. The film was in good company and it is pretty prestigious. Even Marilyn Monroe and Elvis showed up! I am honored to have appeared in the film and in such a great project that focuses not only on Helen's outsize talent but on her kindness, generosity and work ethic. The film would not have come about without the persistence of Bruce Shelton, who like myself has always wanted the world to know about Helen LaFrance.
The film followed the November celebration of Helen's 100th birthday in Mayfield, Kentucky, with a screening of the film and a party in her church where attendees came from far and wide to pay their respects. The Associated Press picked up the story, and it was featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Philadelphia Inquirer, to name a few newspapers.
We are excited to see where the film will go next so the public can enjoy it.
