If you missed Senior Night when it screened in the Southern Documentary Fund's in-progress series last year, here's a chance to see Durham filmmaker David Mayer's short, now completed, as part of a well-rounded evening of entertainment rich with local interest. Centering on Riverside High School basketball player Anthony Peak during his senior year, the elegiac film tells the story of the last game of the season, balancing the glory of the sport against the bittersweet feeling of moving on. And who doesn't love docs set in our own city? At Walltown Children's Theatre, the screening is bolstered by a poetry reading by Zach Goldberg and an original dance choreographed by Cynthia Penn Halal, Walltown's artistic director, with a reception with the artists to follow.
