Two TMF-productions are official selections in this year’s Montgomery Film Festival

Two short films – Clover/Capri and Coffee with Friends – are official selections for the 2021 Montgomery Film Festival.

Clover/Capri (25 min.) details the decades-long history of an independent art house movie theater in the heart of Montgomery, Alabama, weaving through racial segregation, adult films, and its fight for free speech along the way. (Directed by Josh Carples. Produced by Terrible Master Films, in association with Carolyn Jean’s Son Visions, 803 Films, and Early Riser Films.)

Coffee with Friends (22 min.) synopsis: A man’s morning coffee is interrupted by the ghost of his past. (Directed by Jimmie and Autumn Rogers. Produced by Eagle Road Productions and Terrible Master Films, in association with Carolyn Jean’s Son Visions and Early Riser Films.)

Recent press for ‘Remembering Anarcha’

The Washington Post included Remembering Anarcha in their “new movies to stream this week.”

The Alabama Institute for Social Justice talked about the film in their blog “The Power of Truth-telling and Remembrance.”

The Montgomery Advertiser discusses the film in an article about the director: “Josh Carples breaking hearts in music & film; documentary ‘Remembering Anarcha’ out May 4.”

And the Capital City Free Press talks about the film in “Montgomery-made documentary “Remembering Anarcha” set for May 4 release.”

‘Remembering Anarcha’ documentary available for pre-order

Remembering Anarcha, a documentary that explores the controversial history of Dr. James Marion Sims and the enslaved African women that were the subjects of his experiments, is available for pre-order through the iTunes store.

Much of the film takes place in Alabama, specifically in Montgomery where Sims conducted experimental surgeries on Anarcha, Lucy, Betsey and about a dozen other women in the late 1840s.

Known as “the father of modern gynecology,” Sims is celebrated with statues at the Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery, the statehouse grounds in Columbia, SC, and previously in New York City’s Central Park. The New York statue was removed in April 2018 due to his controversial legacy of experimenting on enslaved women without anesthesia.

“My producers and I felt this story was important and timely, and we hope it helps to shed more light on the strength and humanity of Anarcha, Lucy, Betsey, and the other women who endured these surgical experiments,” said Josh Carples, the film’s director.

Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company, is distributing the film in North American markets.

“Filmmaker Josh Carples has powerfully illuminated a little known story in the dark cannon of the legacies of slavery by focusing on the forgotten, rather than the prominent. By doing so he has given a voice to three women, long thought lost to history, and recognized them for their bravery, humanity and impact on modern medicine,” said Gravitas Ventures Acquisitions Coordinator Megan Huggins.

Remembering Anarcha is set to release on-demand on May 4. Pre-order the film here.
