AKRAN (1969) was the first feature-length film of Massillon, Ohio-born filmmaker Richard Myers. The experimental film garnered significant attention with screenings at the Whitney Museum of Art in New York and glowing reviews from high profile film critics like Roger Ebert. The title, AKRAN, is a mash-up of local cities where the film is set (Akron, Cleveland, Kent, and Massillon).
