According to Myrtle Beach’s “The Sun News”, a Columbia film-maker has had his film showcased. What makes it unique and worth mentioning here, is the story is based in part on that of his 2nd-great grandfather. The film is set during the later stages of the Civil War and centers on the romance between a Confederate Capt. and a Northern girl.

It was filmed in locations in South and North Carolina, has some recognizable names involved, although the filmmaker, Julian Adams, played the role of his great-great grandfather. It’s recently been featured in a New York film festival, there are several networks that have contacted him about the film and he is in talks with several companies about releasing the film in theaters.

His father has been the “family genealogist” or “keeper of the book”, and it was he who inspired this to come to film.
