Bloody Dawn: Lawrence Massacre Debuts

Put one of these on your 2008 resolutions.

Bloody Dawn is a documentary about
Quantrill's raid on Lawrence, Kansas. In this event, over 150 unarmed civilian males were killed in cold blood.

The film produced by Lone Chimney films uses the "direct cinema" tradition of documentary films, but will also dedicate a portion of the film to docudrama, where the raid will be played out in cinematic detail.

The folks behind this project did the excellent 2005 documentary Touched by Fire: Bleeding Kansas about the Kansas oriignsrelude to the civil war.
