TONIGHT Friday, October 16 beginning at 7:00 PM at Ridgefield Theater Barn watch Documentary Feature The Hoy Boys and meet the film's director, Dave Simonds!
Attend if you are able to do so! The Ridgefield Theater Barn has gone over and beyond to assure that guests are seated socially distant and Dave Simonds is traveling from Massachusetts today to be present for tonight's film screening and Q&A. In addition to Simonds, executive producers Betsy Hoy Shiverick (daughter of Tom Hoy who is profiled in the film) and Paul Shiverick who live in Southport will also be present.
Word on the street is that this is an incredibly powerful film! Please read a synopsis below:
The story of working-class twin brothers Tom and Frank Hoy, who worked their way up from copyboys to award-winning photojournalists for two major Washington DC newspapers—The Washington Post and The Evening Star. Their iconic work takes us back to the pre-digital era when Americans read newspapers and facts mattered.
