Introduction: Larry Brown(2)
The following year Gary Hawkins released his documentary The Rough South of Larry Brown.  Interwoven with the documentary footage of Brown and his wife are fictional adaptations of three short stories:  "Samaritans," "Wild Thing," and "Boy & Dog" (in the latter, Brown plays the role of Fire Chief).  On display is the first page of an earlier draft of "Samaritans" from the Larry Brown Collection.  The Rough South won several awards at film festivals including "Best Feature Film" at the Ohio Independent Film Festival, "Best Feature" at the Savannah Film & Video Festival, "Best Cinematography" at Riverun International Film Festival in Winston-Salem, and "Best Documentary" at the Oxford Film Festival.
