Deliverance director’s son returns to the river
Englishman John Boorman’s work directing and producing the major motion picture hit “Deliverance” in the early 1970s, in a sense, will come full circle July the 4th week when Boorman’s son, Charley, returns to camp alongside and shoot a video of the famed Chattooga river. Oconee’s Mountain Lakes CVB will play host to the Boorman and his crew. Ken Sloan, CVB director, describes the project as a reminiscent documentary led by Charley Boorman, who has hopes of telecasting it in his Great Britain homeland. The visitors plan to spend Wednesday and Thursday in Brevard, North Carolina and Friday and Saturday in Oconee. The Oconee leg of the trip is being arranged by Long Creek’s Wildwater Limited commercial outfitters.
