    York’s “Smokes and Ears” popular at Tupelo Film Festival

    OXFORD TOWN – It would have to take something pretty special for me to become fascinated with pig ears. But then, Joe York’s documentaries typically fit the bill to give me a new perspective on a topic. His latest, “Smokes and Ears” played at the Tupelo Film Festival last weekend and took third place in the Best Documentary category. (May 20, 2010)

                UM hooligan on the big screen

                OXFORD TOWN – Tate Ellington may be best known in Oxford as a hooligan even if the rest of the world considers him a respectable actor. While in college at Ole Miss, he was part of the comedy troupe, “The Hooligans” but has since gone on to be in numerous film, TV and theater performances. Now living in New York, Ellington recently starred as Aidan in the dramatic “Remember Me” alongside Robert Pattinson of “Twilight” fame. Ellington recently answered a few questions for the Oxford TOWN about his college experiences, working on “Remember Me” and where to see him next. (April 8, 2010, Page 7)

                  Breaking news, breaking down to screen Monday

                  OXFORD TOWN – For the people who tell the stories of other’s tragedies for the world to understand, we often forget that their own experiences of those events are as telling, if not more. While a journalist is trained to remain detached and record the events, in the midst of catastrophe, there are sights and experiences that alter you.
                  “Breaking News, Breaking Down,” is a 36-minute documentary that looks at the journalists behind the words and cameras during Hurricane Katrina and September 11. The film will play in Oxford on Monday, April 12 at 4 p.m. in the Overby Auditorium, next to Farley Hall on the Ole Miss campus.
