______

 

In 2002, over 300 bodies were discovered on the property of the Tri-State Crematory in the Appalachian foothills of northwest Georgia, thrusting an unassuming, tight-knit community into the international spotlight. SAHKANAGA (meaning “Great Blue Hills of God” in Cherokee, pronounced “sock-uh-nogga”) imagines this event from the perspective of Paul, a teenager who stumbles upon the first body.

Matters are further complicated by his father’s ownership of the local funeral home and the arrival of Lyla, a beautiful stranger whose recently deceased grandfather is the first corpse that Paul finds. Filmed in Walker County, GA, with a cast of local, non-professional actors (many of whom had a direct connection to the real-life scandal), the tension mounts as Paul is entangled in his own secrets, and the entire community faces the complexities of forgiveness in the wake of an unfathomable tragedy.

“A richly atmospheric drama... SAHKANAGA reps the rare U.S. feature outside the faith-based entertainment niche that operates from a sincere Christian viewpoint, yet is also critical of pious-seeming hypocrisy. Summerour conveys in subtle, impressionistic strokes how central faith is to this community; similarly, Paul’s troubled conscience and budding adolescent sexuality provide a naturalistic foreground from which the crematorium catastrophe is viewed with curiosity rather than sensationalism. Reminiscent of early David Gordon Green in its ambivalent small-town lyricism, pic hits a textural/tonal ground somewhere between TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD and BLUE VELVET.”

(March 2011) ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY called reRun one of 8 nationwide theaters "redefining the moviegoing experience."

(April 2011) EVERY DAY WITH RACHAEL RAY praised reRun's gourmet popcorn as one of 4 nationwide theaters "giving their classic snack an upgrade."

(October 2011) TIME OUT NEW YORK singled out reRun as a "DIY trailblazer," saying they "love reRun's laid-back vibe" and "friendly staff."

(December 2011) TRAVEL AND LEISURE hailed reRun, among 9 others, as one of "The World's Coolest Movie Theaters."

(February 2012) VARIETY says reRun "raises bar for indies" and is "among the only theaters in the U.S. that provides newfound theatrical and ancillary opportunities to films without a [distributor]."

reRun is reBar's independent cinema, located just down the hall from the restaurant. Featuring 48 reclaimed car seats, full bar, gourmet snack counter, and a 12-foot screen, reRun offers just the kind of intimate art-house theater experience you'd expect from the creators of the funky gastropub reBar.

reRun provides a large theater AV experience. An all-digital 1080p HD projector, coupled with a monstrous JBL 7.1 surround pro-audio sound system make the movies projected on the twelve foot screen come alive in a sparkling show. The bar features two rotating draft taps, a broad selection of bottled craft beers, a selection of sustainable, organic, and biodynamically farmed wines, a full liquor cabinet for your imbibing pleasure, and traditional and creative snacks created by reBar's Executive Chef Jeremy Leech.

During off-hours reRun is available for private rental. Children's birthdays, corporate off-site meetings, and private get-togethers are all possible in the theater. Call the reBar and reRun Special Events Department at (718) 797.3025 for private bookings. Catering available for your parties through reBar.
