This unique phenomenon that happens annually around Bomb Island on Lake Murray has drawn scientists and bird enthusiasts since its discovery in 1988. One of them, Zach Steinhauser, a Lexington local, spent five years researching and following the purple martins to put together the documentary about the local sensation. Zach is a United States Coast Guard licensed Captain who has been all over the United States and Brazil to study this songbird. He hopes that his film, Purple Haze: A Conservation Film, will educate and inspire others to take steps and help preserve these gentle, beautiful songbirds for generations to come.
The World Premiere of “Purple Haze A Conservation Film” will be held right here in Lexington SC at the Icehouse Amphitheater on Saturday April 23. To read more about it, watch the trailer, and purchase tickets, go to https://www.purplehazeacfmovie.com.
