Suwanee indie film series wraps up Monday

SUWANEE -- The final movie of a monthly series of independent films is scheduled to be shown on Monday at the Movie Tavern in Suwanee.

This time, moviegoers will see "Heart of Stone," which shows the efforts of a Newark, N.J., high school principal to turn around one of the most violent schools in the country. In the film, disparate groups, including gangs, are shown working together to rebuild older communities.

Tickets are $6 for the 7 p.m. event at 2855 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road and available at the theater or at www.movietavern.com.

It's the final installment of the city's 2012-13 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers. Previous installments in the film series covered topics that included senior Olympians, New York City cab drivers and a behind-the-scenes look at an up-and-coming New York City chef. Suwanee is one of about 18 communities representing eight states that made up the tour.

Monday's event also includes refreshments and interaction with filmmaker Beth Kruvant.
