Welcome to the first publication dedicated to Vermont and New England movies and video.
For over a century, motion-picture cameras have been cranking and whirring in Vermont, and never more than today. As the digital revolution spawns a renaissance in regional filmmaking, Green Mountain Cinema aims to inform, entertain, and enlighten, opening your eyes to this remarkably diverse world. There's a lot more to it than just covered bridges, maple syrup, and fall foliage, as demonstrated by this debut volume's election-year focus on political films, from agitprop to docudramas to satires.
6x9 tpb, 224 p.
Step right up and see Man With A Plan, Da Speech, The Year That Trembled, And All This Madness and others. Meet Fred Tuttle and Captain Kangaroo, Rusty and Redbelly; Welcome to Windy Acres, but get ready to bust Walmart.
