The Past Ever Present
Debra Coleman Jeter
Three voices tell the story of The Past Ever Present: Clay Jeter (this experience as a child played a pivotal role in Clay’s later decision to attend film school and direct film); Clifton Coleman as a mischievous child begging his brother to play with him; and Clifton as a grandfather and guardian on the set of the tv series Christy. Director and co-writer of Jess + Moss, Clay won the 2011 Governor's Award at the Nashville Film Festival and a string of international awards. But don’t let me mislead you. The book is just as much about Clifton and life in the 1930’s rural south as it is about Clay.
