Jon Bowermaster of Oceans 8 Films will join us for this special screening event at the Catskill Interpretive Center to present Hope on the Hudson, three brand-new short films on the Hudson River:
City on the Water
With 520-miles of waterfront, New York City is truly a water city. Everywhere you go, there are tunnels and bridges delivering you over water, to such a degree some have dubbed the waterways that encircle it “the sixth borough.” There’s brand new activity on all of the waterways that surround NYC, making this the cornerstone of our new ‘Hope on the Hudson’ series.
Restoring the Clearwater
For nearly a year, the historic sloop ‘Clearwater’ was out of water, on land, enduring what wooden boats have endured forever: Restoration. Our OCEANS 8 film crew documented the restoration and return of the ship to the Hudson. Built under the leadership of Pete
Seeger, the Clearwater continues to fulfill his mission – to educate and roam America’s “First River.”
Seeds of Hope
From planting to harvest during 2017 we have documented a unique effort to save several variety of Native American seeds nearly gone extinct. The project, a combined effort of the Hudson Valley Farm Hub, Hudson Valley Seed Library and the Akwesane Tribe of northern New York, is a multi-year effort to preserve both a rich agricultural heritage and its stories.
