Posted by BEN BEAUMONT – As is mentioned in the post below, the Little Rock film festival events at the Clinton School this weekend were a big hit for the second year in a row. The Clinton School showed “Lioness,” a documentary following five women soldiers on the front lines of the Iraq War, and “Mr. Conservative: Goldwater on Goldwater,” the story of the late Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona who ran for president in 1964 against Lyndon Johnson. On hand for panel discussions following the films were Shannon Morgan of Mena, Ark., who is one of the soldiers featured in “Lioness,” and CeCe Goldwater who is featured in the film about her grandfather.
