"In Harmony's Way: The Battle to Save a Bridge," a documentary film covering the history of the closed toll bridge in New Harmony, Indiana, will be shown at 6 p.m. April 20 at Events of Harmony, 515 W. Main Street in New Harmony.

Produced by Dave Black, assistant professor of communications, the one-hour program traces the construction of the bridge, changes in its government oversight, and the recent efforts led by former USI President David L. Rice to find a long-term solution for its survival. The video features interviews with bridge experts, political leaders, and area residents discussing the governance of the bridge and its importance to the southern regions of Indiana and Illinois. The program is narrated by Wayne Rinks, chair of the Department of Communications, and Pam Moore, senior administrative assistant in the College of Liberal Arts.

The screening is sponsored by the Kent and Laurie Parker Family Foundation and is free and open to the public. To make a reservation, call Events of Harmony at 812/682-3310.
