Looking for Ms. Locklear

‘Looking for Ms. Locklear' to be presented award at 2008 Secret City Film FestivalThe documentary film "Looking for Ms. Locklear" has been awarded the Southern Lens Award for the Best Southern Film, presented each year by South Carolina Public Television to a Secret City Film Festival selection. The film, written and directed by North Carolina filmmakers Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal, was chosen in August as an official selection of the 2008 Secret City Film Festival, which will be held Oct. 9 to 12 at the Oak Ridge Playhouse.

The film is the story of two lifelong best friends and 'semi-famous web comedians', searching for the teacher of the first grade class where they met. Deciding to use only word of mouth, their journey leads them deep into the heart of an obscure tribe of Native Americans, the Lumbee of North Carolina.
