Oakdale Cemetery DVD: Where Angels and Mortals Meet
Friends of Oakdale Cemetery have available a new documentary, Oakdale Cemetery, Where Angles and Mortals Meet. It tells the story of Oakdale, North Carolina’s first Rural cemetery, opened in 1855.
Oakdale Cemetery is among the earliest Rural cemeteries in the country. Authorities recognize Oakdale for its aesthetic richness and historic significance. Its diverse assemblage of monuments, statuary, and funerary art, as well as its fine collection of flora and fauna put it in the forefront of the state’s historic treasures. All of these aspects are featured in Oakdale Cemetery, Where Angles and Meet.
Donald Koonce, a native Wilmingtonian and owner of Ferncreek Creative, Greenville, SC, produced the documentary. Koonce is an award winning film and video producer who specializes in documentary work. He has produced and directed special documentaries for NASA, The Gettysburg National Battlefield Park, The National Air and Space Museum and numerous museums throughout the country. His production for the South Carolina State Museum, "Destiny's People: Stories of South Carolina" was awarded an international CINE "Golden Eagle" by the Committee for International Nontheatrical Events.
Wilmington photographer, Melva Calder, shot additional still photographs which Koonce used throughout the documentary.
The retail price is $15.00. If purchased at the Oakdale Cemetery Office (520 N 15th Street), members of the Friends receive a $2.00 discount.
