Presenting Our 2012 Featured Film
Produced and Directed by NEAL HUTCHESON Executive Producer WALT WOLFRAM A production of THE NORTH CAROLINA LANGUAGE AND LIFE PROJECT
Along Core Sound lies a string of small fishing villages where many families have lived and worked for centuries, adapting to the harsh environment, unique ecosystem, and ever-changing geography of the Carolina tidal basin. Maintaining traditions based around this adaptation in the climate of a frontier culture, the original residents are now seeing their rich traditions eroded by an array of challenges, including water pollution, development and relocated outsiders. Atlantic depicts ancestral attitudes of interdependence between community and ecology being eroded by a rising tide of free market forces, and a ferociously independent people organizing to fight for their mutual interests.
About the Festival
Please join us for a wine and cheese reception and a series of short, entertaining films related to water. The Riverkeeper Film Festival showcases some of the best films from around the world and across all genres.
Tickets are only $10 for adults and $5 for children or students with a school ID. Each screening will open with a wine and cheese reception.
The 2012 Riverkeeper Film Festival is an exploration of culture and community in NC. The program will highlight student activities that have had an impact on their community through working to change a policy or practice affecting water quality in the Neuse Basin. Following the reception and student showcase we will screen a feature film from Emmy Award wining Neil Hutcheson and his portrayal of fisherman in the Neuse and Pamlico Sound. It is a departure from previous film festival formats, but a great opportunity to reconnect with people in our waterway.
Created in 2005, the Neuse Riverkeeper Film Festival has expanded its audience while maintaining a friendly, intimate atmosphere by selecting local community theater venues throughout the Neuse River basin. The January 2012 schedule includes screenings in the communities of Raleigh and New Bern.
