Filmmakers Jeremy Teicher and Alexi Pappas: From Senegal to Tracktown

Apr 28, 2015

Eugene filmmakers Jeremy Teicher and Alexi Pappas speak with Eric Alan about their two feature films, and the human connection between them. Tall as the Baobab Tree explores the lives of the first girls to be educated in a Senegalese village, while Tracktown tells a story about running, set in Eugene. (Alexi Pappas is a two-time NCAA All-American runner, as well as a filmmaker.)  Tall as the Baobab Tree screens on Thursday, April 30th, as part of the Cinema Pacific Film Festival in Eugene.
