Director, co-producer of Tap Out
It does not surprise me at all that Vikki Matsis wrote a revealing book about a secretive industry. That's Vikki - truthful, upfront, a what-you-see-is-what-you-get person. Vikki is a no guile girl, and you've got to love her for it.
Will Moredock stuck his neck out for justice and equality week after week for ten years, and week after week, he took the slings and arrows of anonymous haters. Unlike his mysterious detractors, he boldly signed his real name to his often hotly debated columns. That’s a lesson in courage for all of us. Good luck to you, Will and thank you.
The film will be shown at 5:30 on Thursday at the School of Education's Alumni Center. The entrance is on St. Philip Street between Wentworth and Liberty Streets. There is a workshop on Saturday at the same location and bus tour on Sunday.
Good Column, Will and congratulations to Kerry Taylor and The Citadel for creating these important oral histories with the Smithsonian.
I first met Mr. Bill Saunders ten years ago when I interviewed him for a documentary I was making titled, Where Do We Go From Here. I found Bill to be a serious man with flinty courage and an unlikely intellectual from rural Johns Island.
I had been inspired by Lucy Massie Phenix’s 1985 documentary, You Got To Move. It focused on Highlander School alumni who have been leading the fights for civil and labor rights. One of whom was Bill Saunders.
In a perfect conclusion, I recently got a call from Lucy Massie Phenix. She asked me to film an interview for the bonus tracks of the 25th anniversary edition of You Got To Move with none other than Bill Saunders.
This Oct 18th the anniversary edition of You Got To Move will be released from Milestone Films. http://www.yougottomove.com
