OAKFIELD, GA (WALB) - An Atlanta based film group wrapped up the month-long filming of a short movie at a home in Oakfield Wednesday.
The Director of "Across the Tracks", Michael Cooke, was born in Albany and the group says that's why they chose Southwest Georgia as a setting. The 20 minute film is about 2 Georgia sisters with different skin tones in the 1960's and overcoming adversity in an integrated school.
The crew filmed several scenes at a home in the 100 block of Jackson Street Wednesday.
Producers say Albany and Oakfield residents have responded well to the film. "It's definitely a heartfelt piece. You know, we've had some of the residence in town come out and they've given us grace and what not," said Errol Sadler, "Across the Tracks" producer. "They tell us they really like what we're doing. They really like the message. "
The group is leaving Oakfield Wednesday night to head back to Atlanta for more filming. They plan to hold a screening here next year.
