David Turnley Awarded Best Director at Atlanta International Documentary Film Festival

October 9, 2012

David Turnley was awarded Best Director, Documentary Feature at the Atlanta International Documentary Film Festival for his film Shenandoah, a documentary about a coal mining town with a proud immigrant heritage, once pivotal in fueling America’s industrial revolution and today in decline and struggling to survive and retain its identity, soul and values - all of which were dramatically challenged when four of the town’s white, star football players were charged in the beating death of an undocumented Mexican immigrant named Luis Ramirez.
