CPR, Partnered with the Cleveland International Film Festival, presents “The Great Flood”

Cleveland Print Room is the Cleveland International Film Festival‘s Community Partner for Bill Morrison’s film, “The Great Flood” at this year’s festival.

The Great Flood, an 80-minute film showing April 9th, 10th, and 11th, is a wordless film collaged together from vintage archival newsreel newsreel footage accompanied by a new soundtrack by Bill Frisell, and concerns the great 1927 flood of the Mississippi River, the most destructive river flood in American history.

Check out the preview trailer, and come visit our table outside the Cleveland Film Festival theater showings of this film!
