Film Featuring Cairo To Be Shown Wednesday

BTRposter-portrait-sAt the far southern tip of Illinois is a city that has quite a story to tell.  Thanks to an unlikely pair of filmmakers, Cairo’s story is being seen.
Jacob Cartwright and Nick Jordan stumbled upon the community while on another project.  The result was the documentary “Between Two Rivers.”  The film will be shown Wednesday night at the Illinois State Museum.  The British filmmakers joined us via Skype to talk more about their work.  
Those who attend tomorrow night will learn how a once thriving community  became a shell of its former self.   From it’s troubled past to it’s struggles today, the documentary brings it all to the screen.
