Stark Love - Best Source of Information
19 July 2005 | by (Sacramento, California) – See all my reviews

The most informational and scholarly accounts of the making of Stark Love are an extensive multi-article review in the Winter 1991 issue of the Appalachian Journal, and a more recent article by by George Ellison published in the Smokey Mountain News on February 28, 2001. The latter article is available at the archives of the Smokey Mountain News website (www.smokymountainnews.com).

These clarify many of the inaccuracies that have been passed along in written accounts, most of which stem from the film's obscurity. Most notably, documentation from the late director Karl Brown indicates the film was shot in the Santeetlah area of Graham County, southwestern North Carolina, near the town of Robbinsville.

Stark Love is not commercially available, but a mute video copies made from the only surviving Czech archival print are available for viewing at the UCLA film library, and (presumably) at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. It is a great film, and offers priceless glimpses of a unique, lost way of life.
