Finding Courage Interview

“Reel Conversations” highlights filmmakers responsible for some of the official Real to Reel Film Festival Selections. On this episode of “Reel Conversations,” Thomas Manning speaks with Kay Rubacek, writer/director for “Finding Courage”.

“Finding Courage” was originally slated as an 8-minute doc short, until Rubacek realized the volumes of material she had uncovered were enough for multiple film projects. “Finding Courage” explores politics, oppression, torture, Chinese labor camps and religious persecution. Through the voices of those who have first-hand knowledge (former prisoners, party leaders, media, and families of victims), Rubacek offers a fascinating glimpse at a culture, place and people … and asks the question … what can we do about the pain and suffering that continues to happen each day.

The Cleveland County Arts Council will host films like “Finding Courage” from Sept, 9-12, for the 21st Annual “Real to Reel International Film Festival.” Real to Reel will also offer a companion virtual festival featuring official selections Dept. 9 -Oct. 9.

For over two decades, Real to Reel has showcased thought-provoking films from around the world and offers opportunities for cinema-lovers to embrace the independent vision of this unique art form.
