My Ántonia at 100: The Ongoing Story

Our short film, “Willa Cather’s My Ántonia at 100: The Ongoing Story,” was created throughout our year-long celebration of the 100th anniversary of the publication of My Ántonia, in collaboration with filmmaker Michael Burton. Special thanks to Jessica Dussault for performing the score, to each of our wonderful readers, and to of our community partners: The Willa Cather Foundation, Humanities Nebraska, Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, Rowe Sanctuary, Panhandle Business & Professional Women, and Community Crops.
