Anthony Reynolds has been acting onscreen since 1993, but since 2001 he has also been producing films. His latest effort, an intense 22-minute short film called Times Like Dying, will be shown at Cucalorus on Thursday, November 13 at 7:15 at Thalian Hall. It is set in the mountains of NC in the year 1887, when the railroad is buying the farmer's land at a pittance to expand the railroad. When the Dixon brothers won't sell to the bank someone kills all their cattle, and the situation only worsens from there. For more details visit Cucalorus.org
