Blood, sweat and tears in a bottle

By Staff
SUWANEE- Forget about swirling, sniffing, and sipping. "Harvest," the next film in Suwanee's Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, takes a look at the back-breaking manual labor and 2 a.m. pickings that go into harvesting grapes and making wine. The feature-length documentary to be shown at 7 p.m. Tuesday, November 12, at Movie Tavern, follows five family wineries in Sonoma County, California, during the 2011 harvest, which turned out to be the worst in that region in 50 years.<br /> <br /> Attendees will have an opportunity to interact with filmmaker John Beck, who spends his time directing and producing documentaries, shooting promotional videos, and writing as a freelance journalist. The winner of numerous film festival awards, Beck was born in Nashville but now lives in the San Francisco Bay area.<br /> <br /> Tickets are $6 each and available at Movie Tavern, 2855 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road, or online at movietavern.com. Suwanee's independent film series will continue with three additional films to be shown in February, March, and April.<br /> <br /> The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is funded, in part, by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
