On September 7th at 6:30 pm, the Blount County Friends of the Library will present the hand-painted animated short film, Sixteen Kings’ Daughters, which brings to life a traditional Blount County song from the Maryville College Archives. The screening of the film will be followed by a panel discussion with the project's director, the filmmaker, and local experts who will speak to the context of the piece of local history celebrated by the film. Specific topics that will be discussed are the film’s musical and visual choices, the Horne/Hamby Collection at Maryville College, and the history of migration and folkways between the mountains and the valley of Blount County. A question and answer session will conclude the event. For the event, the Panel will be presenting remotely with the option for attendees to attend remotely or in person. This project has been made possible by a generous grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission.
