By Kristen Arute, Hingham Current Staff; October 27, 2020

Hingham was the site of filming for a television show last week and recently was the backdrop for another project too. Colin Charles Dale calls Hingham home and used faces and places as his inspiration for "Magnolia Flowers," a feature film he wrote, directed and produced.

In this candid interview, Dale shares about his years growing up in Hingham, reveals personal struggles that contributed to the content of "Magnolia Flowers" and talks about his future plans.

The film is currently in post production and will be completed by next summer. In addition to entering it in festivals, Dale hopes to hold a preview of the film in Hingham.
