Potterville's Sam Davis was an integral part of the 26 minute documentary 'Period. End of Sentence.' that won an Oscar at Sunday night's 91st Annual Academy Awards.  

While accepting the award for Documentary (Short Subject), Rayka Zehtabchi gave love "to my creative partner, Sam Davis, I share this with you, baby!"

Davis traveled to Harpur, North India, with Zehtabchi, to tell the story of the stigma women in that region still face surrounding menstruation, and to share the experience of installing a "pad machine" in the village.  He also joined her on stage.

Davis' new project is 'Cents,' a film about a 2002 train derailment in Potterville that forced the evacuation of the city.  The movie will be filmed in Potterville this spring and summer.
