The second film event of the series takes place on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 at 7:00 pm with a screening of the local documentary, CLUCK, PLUCK, AND LUCK at Metropolitan Community Church of Rehoboth (MCC Rehoboth), 19369 Plantation Road, Rehoboth Beach. Doors open at 6:30 pm.
In 1923 Ocean View housewife, Cecile Steele, ordered 50 chicks and received 500! While consumed with managing this challenge, she unknowingly was starting Delmarva’s chicken industry. Since then, chickens have played a huge role in Delaware folklore with the University of Delaware even adopting the Fighting Blue Hen as their mascot. Local filmmaker Michael Oates’ new documentary, CLUCK, PLUCK AND LUCK tells the story of how a group of subsistence farmers, African Americans, and immigrant Jewish businessmen were the foundation of what was to become a multi-billion dollar industry. [2014, USA, Runtime: 70 minutes, Not Rated]
Michael Oates, also Director of “The ’62 Storm” will be present to lead a post screening discussion.
