D.C. Consultant’s Film To Screen at Avalon

Political consultant and award-winning filmmaker Chris Sautter will screen his newest film, “So Glad I Made It: The Saga of Roger Salloom, America’s Best Unknown Songwriter,” tonight at the Avalon Theater as part of its local filmmaker series.

Sautter, head of the D.C.-based political consulting firm Sautter Communications, was recently awarded The Providence Award at the Rhode Island International Film Festival for “So Glad I Made It.” His first film, “The King of Steeltown,” a look at the politics of East Chicago, Ind., took the award for Best Political Documentary at the New York Independent Film Festival in 2001.

His new film looks at the lives of musicians, and why some fail while others succeed. The subject of the movie, Roger Salloom, tries to reclaim a place in the music business after leaving two decades prior.

“So Glad I Made It” will be shown at 8 p.m. at the Avalon Theater, 5612 Connecticut Ave. NW. Tickets are $8.50 and are available at the box office. After the film, Salloom will perform a short acoustic set.
