Fellows follow HBO crew in Richmond

 

A group of Elon University Communications Fellows recently visited the set of "Iron-Jawed Angels," a film being produced in Richmond, Va., by HBO Productions, a division of AOL Time Warner. The film stars Oscar winners Hilary Swank, Angelica Huston as well as Julia Ormond and Patrick Dempsey.

The docudrama reenacts some aspects of the women's suffrage movement of the early 1900s. It tells the story of Alice Paul, the founder of the National Woman's Party and author of the Equal Rights Amendment. She picketed the White House during Woodrow Wilson's presidency and was jailed. The film is slated to air on HBO in the spring.

The fellows, accompanied by Elon faculty members Brooke Barnett, Tom Mould and Ann Cahill, spent a morning on the set of the movie during the filming of exterior White House scenes.
