Dakota Midday: Kocher And Lavelle On "Over The Bridge"

May 18, 2016

Augustana filmmakers Sara Kocher and Maria Lavelle show their documentary on homelessness tonight at Cinema Falls. “Over the Bridge” is a look at men and women who have “fallen through the safety nets” of society. The two student filmmakers are receiving support and encouragement from Cinema Falls and others in their attempt to launch the film onto the film festival circuit. Kocher and Lavelle join Dakota Midday host Lori Walsh to talk about what they learned on the frozen streets of Sioux Falls by turning their camera … and their questions … on those they had previously overlooked.

Cinema Falls is showing “Over the Bridge” on May 18. Doors open at 6 p.m. at the Icon Lounge, Sioux Falls Ticket proceedings go into a fund for film festival entry fees and travel.
