"Looking to the River" Nov 16 at New Deal Cafe'
November 8, 2009
"Looking To The River" is a one-hour documentary film that examines critical contemporary issues pertaining to the Susquehanna River's Middle Basin—economic development, environmental protection, and cultural preservation—through their connection to the profound history and heritage of the river and its 27,000 square-mile watershed.
The Susquehanna River drains the largest basin that feeds the Chesapeake Bay. A powerful assembly of expert commentators contributed to this film. They include geologists, biologists, geographers and archeologists. Historians from major universities and representatives from key river and organization in Pennsylvania and Maryland also contribute their expertise.
The folklore of the river is recalled by residents who trace their ancestry to the river rats and religious reformers who came to the Susquehanna seeking fortune and faith, or those who simply participate in community events along the Susquehanna.
Discussion after the film will be led by Greg Matkosky, the film's writer, director, photographer, and co-producer. For more information Contact Bob Cahalan at email@example.com.
