Bonesteel film on Sandburg to reach national audience

The Day Carl Sandburg Died, the documentary by Flat Rock native Paul Bonesteel on the poet who lived the last 22 years of his life at Connemara, will be broadcast nationally next month.

The one-hour film will air at 10 p.m. Monday, Sept. 24, on the PBS series "American Masters."
"The Bonesteel team is excited to witness the culmination of years of hard work," Bonesteel Films said on its website. "The ultimate goal since the beginning of this journey, more than seven years ago, has been to have the opportunity to tell Sandburg's story to a national audience."
"More thanks are in order, but in the meantime we'd like to thank those at PBS and WNET and our many partners and contributors, all who have helped the story. We are buckling down for the next few hectic months of film publicity and promotion, but stay tuned to the website and our Facebook page, Bonesteel Films, for exclusive clips and insights into the broadcast."
The film company also announced that DVDs of the show, including "never before seen cast interviews and special features," are now on sale for $24.99 through PBS.
