Where the River Runs North: discussion and screening

  • The Bennington Center for the Arts 44 Gypsy Lane VT, 05201 United States (map)

Award-winning filmmaker Jay Craven will present a special tribute to Vermont writer, Howard Frank Mosher, who passed away unexpectedly in late January. Craven has made five “Vermont Westerns" during his 28-year collaboration with Mosher. He will present a 20-minute talk, “My Life, So Far, With Howard,” in which Craven will detail his often-daunting exploits, making the films, and his always-humorous experiences, working with Mosher. Following his talk, Craven will present a 25th anniversary screening of his film, Where the Rivers Flow North, starring Academy Award nominee, Rip Torn, Native American actress, Tantoo Cardinal (Dances with Wolves, Legends of the Fall), and Michael J. Fox. 

Set in 1927 Vermont, Rivers tells the story of an old Vermont logger and his Native American mate who face the extinction of their way of life when the local power company plans to build a giant hydro dam that will flood them off their land. Lord and Bangor face emotional and physical challenges as they struggle with the power company, Vermont’s unforgiving terrain, and their own thorny relationship.

Tickets are $12 adults and $5 students under 18. Proceeds from Craven’s tour will support digitization and preservation of the Mosher films and preparation and production of study materials for schools and communities. For more information, contact Jay Craven (jcraven@marlboro.edu).

The discussion begins at 7pm, doors will open at 6:30pm.  For tickets call The Bennington Center for the Arts at 802-442-7158 or click on the link below.
