Hudson River Stories, Short Films with Jon Bowermaster
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Join us for a series of short "Hope on the Hudson" films by Jon Bowermaster from his Hudson River Stories collection, including the premiere of a brand new film. Each film will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker. The four films to be shown: Keeping Carbon: Hudson Valley farmers have been dealing with the impacts of a changing climate for several years now. One unified goal for a committed group of very different farmers in Dutchess and Columbia counties is to keep as much carbon as possible where it belongs, in the ground rather than in the atmosphere. Growing with the Grain: When there were just thirteen States, the Hudson Valley was America's bread basket. But as the west opened up, grain growing followed. Today, with the boom in local bakers and brewers, all desirous of sourcing locally, efforts to grow grain are booming, too. A Living River: A new film that chronicles the efforts of Riverkeeper, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and others to restore the life and the ecosystem in the Hudson River. The premiere of a brand new film, documenting the work of the organization FarmHub as they explore how the agriculture industry can coexist with wildlife—that is SO new it doesn't yet have a name!
