Screening Of 1916 Flood Film At Hickory Public Library

Hickory Public Library
Press Release


HICKORY, N.C. - Join Hickory Public Library for a virtual program with award-winning filmmaker David Weintraub on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at 4 p.m. A documentary Come Hell or High Water, Remembering the Great Flood of 1916 will be screened followed by a discussion with the filmmaker Weintraub and a question and answer period.

Learn about the worst natural disaster to hit the Southern Appalachian just over one hundred years ago and how our recent ancestors were able to overcome major calamities and get back on their feet without access to modern technology. Explore the concern that in reality WNC is a flood prone area and such a disaster could repeat. Given that the Great Flood led to hundreds of mudslides and landslides causing extensive damage at a time when no one lived on the side of mountains, the worry is that should a flood of similar proportions occur today it would likely be more devastating.

David Weintraub has been an oral historian and filmmaker for over 20 years. His films have appeared on PBS stations around the country and at film festivals around the world.

The Center for Cultural Preservation is a cultural nonprofit organization dedicated to working for mountain heritage continuity through oral history, documentary film, education and public programs. More information about the Center may be found at www.saveculture.org.

This is a free event but space is limited so registration is required. Sign up through the Library Events calendar at www.hickorync.gov/library or by calling 828-304-0500. We will send an email reminder with login information for the Zoom meeting on the day of the event.
