Jay Craven’s new independent narrative feature film, “Jack London’s Martin Eden,” will play two
special screenings, 7pm, Sunday and Monday, August 22 nd and 23 rd at The Peacham Library. The
film received its world premiere at the Nantucket Film Festival in June and is slated for upcoming
screenings at the Boston Film Festival and others.
“Jack London’s Martin Eden” is based on the celebrated writer’s autobiographical novel. Set in 1909, it tells the story of a poor and unschooled sailor who unexpectedly meets Ruth Morse, a magnetic young woman of means and education. Their nconventional attraction upends both lives and propels timely themes of impossible love, dogged individualism in pursuit of the
American Dream, and the quest for a comfortable place in an inconstant world.
