Arts Council Summer Film Series: 61 Bullets
July 17 @ 7:00 pm$5
Come and enjoy the 2nd Annual Summer Film Series. Hosted by the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council and Flying Tiger.
September 8, 1935. Bullets ricochet through the marble corridors of the Louisiana State Capitol in Baton Rouge. When the shooting finally stops and the panicked screaming subsides, two men have been fatally wounded. The first: populist United States Senator Huey P. Long, the most powerful man in Louisiana, and one of the most prominent political figures in 1930s America. The second: Dr. Carl Weiss, a respected local physician, and Long’s presumed assailant. Weiss is riddled with sixty bullets, some of which have passed through his body and lodged in the alabaster walls. Blood soaks through his white linen suit and onto the ornate floor of the State Capitol.
61 Bullets is a documentary, a true battle to define history!
