Pharaoh’s Army screening part of inauguration events, features Central Kentucky setting

Hollywood writer and director Robby Henson will be on campus to give a talk and show his Civil War film Pharaoh’s Army. The film stars Academy Award winner Chris Cooper and Academy Award nominees Kris Kristofferson and Patricia Clarkson and chronicles a Yankee raiding party’s confrontation with a Confederate mountain woman and her son in Kentucky. Pharaoh’s Army, which was shot on location near Danville and in the Red River Gorge, focuses on the region’s unique divisions during the Civil War. Henson will speak about how oral history transitions into film.

The screening and presentation will be in the Cowgill Center, room 102, on Friday, April 29. The event is free and open to the public. To see more inauguration events, check out the complete schedule.
