Kelly and Tammy Rundle's first docudrama, “Sons & Daughters of Thunder,” will have its world premiere at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, March 16* at the Putnam Museum National Geographic Giant Screen, 1717 W. 12th St. Davenport, IA.

"Sons & Daughters of Thunder” tells the true story of 1834 Lane Seminary debates in Cincinnati, Ohio. Organized by Theodore Weld (Thomas Alan Taylor), one of the architects of the abolitionist movement, the shocking oratory sparked intense controversy and awakened a young Harriet Beecher (Jessica Taylor) to the horrors of slavery.  Harriet Beecher-Stowe went on to pen the anti-slavery novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” which changed American public opinion in favor of abolition.

Advance tickets for the Putnam premiere available at Tickets are $10/pp and pre-ordering is strongly recommended.  *If the March 16 event sells out, an additional screening will be added at 3pm on March 17.

"Sons & Daughters of Thunder" is based on a play by Earlene Hawley and Curtis Heeter, and is produced and directed by Kelly and Tammy Rundle of Fourth Wall Films, an award-winning and Regional Emmy® nominated independent film and video production company formerly located in Los Angeles, and now based in the Quad Cities.  The film was shot in the Quad Cities region, Andover and Sterling, Illinois, and Cincinnati, Ohio.
