24th Woods Hole Film Festival Offers Great Films

Jul 22, 2015


The Woods Hole Film Festival is happening for the 24th summer. Mindy Todd interviews several of this year's participants on The Point. First, director Ron Davis talks about his documentary film Harry & Snowman. It's the story of a broken down Amish plow horse rescued off a slaughter truck bound for the glue factory, who went on to win the triple crown of show jumping. Next, we hear from director Linda Matchan and producer Susan Gray about their documentary Circus Without Borders. It's a tale of two circus troupes from opposite ends of the globe, in two of the world’s most challenged communities, who converge to realize a common dream. Finally, we hear from Peter Barton, director, and Liz Roman Gallese, producer, about their documentary Women of ‘69, Unboxed. It's an intimate portrait of a group of women: the colorful class of 1969 from Skidmore College. They recently turned 65, and are starting to explore the New Old Age, and are feeling a Third Wind.
