Check out the Scene segment from last Friday’s “Think,” which features Gini’s Deep In The Arts calendar update. The main attraction, though, is a new short film from KERA’s Rob Tranchin called “Million Dollar Monarch.”
The film traces the history of a massive pecan tree in a stately neighborhood on the edge of the Park Cities. The tree was planted sometime in the mid-19th century and withstood harsh North Texas weather and development that plowed over a farm to become quite a landmark in the Dallas area, particularly during the holiday season.
More information on the film is coming to kera.org soon, but for now, take a few minutes and watch – you’ll be glad you did.
