Austin Peay State University professors to present documentary, “Clarksville 1937,” at Nashville Film Festival

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – When Charles Crow started filming everyday life in downtown Clarksville, there was no such thing as YouTube or iPhones or even the Internet.

The year was 1937, and Crow, a young editor with The Leaf-Chronicle, had just purchased a 16-millimeter Keystone Camera—one of the first affordable film cameras sold in the U.S. It only captured images in black and white and without sound.

APSU professors Kathy Lee Heuston and Karen Bullis have turned the Charles Crow's footage into an 8-minute documentary, “Clarksville 1937,”

APSU history students put on strong showing at regional history conference

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – The Vietnam War—America’s first “rock and roll war,” as it came to be known—had a distinct soundtrack that continues to help define it.

That’s why Ken Burns’ 2017 documentary, “The Vietnam War,” featured music by Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix, and why The Rolling Stones’ hit, “Paint It Black,” shows up in Stanley Kubrick’s film “Full Metal Jacket.” Even Forest Gump marched through rain and muck to the sounds of Buffalo Springfield.

Blick family honors son’s legacy with the Brock Blick Animal Science Facility at APSU Farm

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – One of Brock Blick’s first words—shortly after he learned to say “mom” and “dad”—was the word “cow.” As a baby, strapped in his car seat, he’d often shout the word whenever his father, Mark Blick, drove past a farm.

“It’d scare you to death,” Mark said recently. “It was a wonder we didn’t have wrecks, he yelled it so loud. But he loved animals.”
