La Vernia Connections: See free SA River film
LA VERNIA -- The San Antonio River Authority (SARA) will offer free screenings of a documentary about the San Antonio River in Wilson County. The 70-minute movie, “Sustaining and Enriching Life in South Texas: The Story of the San Antonio River,” was developed by SARA and produced by Thompson Marketing and Ten-Eighty Productions. Members of the public can see the film free of charge in the La Vernia City Park on Friday, July 12, at 8 p.m. Refreshments will be provided.
“This engaging film covers the history and environmental issues associated with the San Antonio River,” said Suzanne Scott, SARA’s general manager. “While the footage will open some eyes as to the vast region the river flows through, viewers will also see the natural beauty of the river and learn about the challenges facing the watershed and how SARA and others are working to ensure the river’s future sustainability.”
The film features interviews with Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney, Wilson County historians Gene Maeckel and Maurine Liles; several members of SARA’s board of directors, including John Flieller, Gaylon Oehlke, Sally Buchanan, Terry Baiamonte, and Roberto Rodriguez; and many more.
Aerial photography, including footage from a robotic helicopter, takes viewers to vantage points of the river never seen before.
Moviegoers can enter a drawing for prizes, including gift certificates from area restaurants. View a trailer of the film at http://sa-riverfilm.com.
The film will be shown at the Wilson County Show Barn in Floresville on Friday, July 19, and in Goliad County in the coming months. Details will be released at a later date.
