Film Premiere Set For Veterans Day At Putnam Museum
Something truly amazing will be showing at Putnam Museum in Davenport Iowa on Veterans Day weekend. The Emmy® award-winning Quad Cities filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle of Fourth Wall Films will premiere their new documentary. It is called “An Infantryman from Hero Street”
This fact and bit of history is something I'll always remember:
Only a block and a half long, Second Street in Silvis, Illinois lost six young men in World War II and two in the Korean War, more than any other street in America.
In fact, you can actually see Hero street the next time you are in Silvis.
About Hero Street Film
An Infantryman from Hero Street will be the fourth episode in the "Hero Street" documentary series. It tells the true story of Pvt. Joseph Sandoval, a man who was born in a boxcar to Mexican immigrants in Silvis, Illinois.
About Fourth Wall Films
The saying they have on their website honestly says it all "Heartland, Not Hollywood" They are an Illinois-based film and video production company specializing in Midwestern historical documentaries for public television broadcast and national DVD and Blu-ray home video release and online streaming.
Fourth Wall Films was formed in Kansas City, Missouri by husband and wife filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle. The company was located in Los Angeles, California from 1989-2007. Fourth Wall Films has found a permanent Heartland home in the Quad Cities on the Mississippi River.
You can really see the love they put behind their work.
The "Fourth Wall" is the missing wall in a stage performance, or the wall a film is projected on in a motion picture theater. It is the interface between the audience and the performance.
