Celebrate 70s Lawrence: Three Short Films from a Groovy Time

6/30 @ 5:00 pm 6:30 pm

Join us at the Lawrence Public Library as we turn back the clock with an entertaining showcase of short films made in Lawrence! No tickets are needed. About the films:

  • The Kansas Marijuana Harvest (15min), 60 Minutes report on the “River City Outlaws” and their illegal pot growing amid the turmoil of 1970 Lawrence.
  • Fences and Gates (25min), a Centron Studios film about musicianship and economics following the journey of Tide, a Lawrence-based jazz rock band.
  • Shake Hands With Danger  (23min), sometimes called the “Citizen Kane of safety films,” this compelling Centron Studios short is about dangers associated with work at construction sites.

Part of the Free State Festival and the Lawrence 1970s Project.
