Filming has begun for AETN documentary about the Dreamland Ballroom

The Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN) was recently awarded a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council and additional funds from the Moving Image Trust to produce a documentary about the Dreamland Ballroom in the historic Taborian Hall, home of Arkansas Flag and Banner, on Ninth Street in Little Rock.

Filming began in January and will run through the end of 2013.  Producer Mark Wilcken hopes to have a finished product by the summer of 2014, adding “This project has been in development for several years so it feels great to finally start production. The building and the Ballroom are filled with stories that I’m excited to uncover and share with the audience.”
