Friday, Sept. 6 at 7:30 p.m. -BRANDON- Award winning Vermont
director, Jay Craven, will present his new film, Northern Borders,
at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 6 at the Brandon Town Hall as part of
Craven's Town Tour of northern New England this summer. Craven will
introduce the picture and lead a post-film discussion.
Northern Borders is based on Howard Frank Mosher's award-winning
novel. The movie stars Bruce Dern and Genevieve Bujold. It
tells the story of ten year old Austen Kittredge, who is sent to
live on his grandparents' Kingdom County Vermont farm, where he has
wild adventures and uncovers long festering family secrets. Set in
1956, the movie is a humorous and sometimes startling coming-of-age
story. Northern Borders evokes Vermont's wildness, its sublime
beauty, a haunted past and an aura of enchantment.
The film was produced as the result of a unique partnership
between Craven's non-profit Kingdom County Productions and Marlboro
College, where Craven is professor of film. This showing will
be a benefit for Kingdom County Productions and The Brandon Town
Hall. Ticket prices are $12 for adults, ($10 in advance) $6 for
students, 17 and under, $10 for Seniors, 55 and up with a special
family four pack (2-adults, 2-17 and under) for $25. Tickets are
available at Carr's Florist & Gifts or at the door.
