    The Footcandle Film Society will be screening the documentary RAISE HELL: THE LIFE & TIMES OF MOLLY IVINS on Wednesday, November 13th and Thursday, November 14th at the Carolina Theater in downtown Hickory.  Showtime is 7:00pm both nights.  All current Footcandle members are admitted free; all guest tickets are $5.00 at the door.

    About the film:  (Documentary)  RAISE HELL: The Life And Times of Molly Ivins tells the story of media firebrand Molly Ivins. Often compared to Mark Twain, Ivins was six feet of Texas trouble who, despite her Houston pedigree, took on Good Old Boy corruption wherever she found it. Best-selling author, Pulitzer Prize nominated journalist, popular TV pundit, Molly had a nation of "fans" and "frenemies." She courageously spoke truth to power and it cost her more than once. But Molly always served up her quality reportage with a heaping dollop of humor. The gal was funny! Her razor-sharp wit left both sides of the aisle laughing and craving ink in her columns.
