Saturday, Jan. 28 at 3 p.m.—WOODSTOCK—Billings Farm & Museum continues with its seventh annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series, featuring the award-winning documentary “Welcome to Leith” on Saturday, Jan. 28, 3 and 5 p.m. The programs are open to the public and accessible to people with disabilities. Reservations are strongly recommended.
“Welcome to Leith” is the story of the attempted takeover of a small town in North Dakota by notorious white supremacist Craig Cobb. As his behavior becomes more threatening, tensions soar, and the residents desperately look for ways to expel their unwanted neighbor. With incredible access to both longtime residents of Leith and white supremacists, the film examines a small community in the Plains struggling for sovereignty against an extremist vision.
The film earned the following awards at Sundance Film Festival: a Grand Jury Prize nomination; plus an additional seven wins and six nominations.
Tickets prices are $5-$11. For more information, visit billingsfarm.org/filmfest or call 802-457-2355.
Billings Farm & Museum is located one-half mile north of the Woodstock village green on Vermont Route 12. It is owned and operated by The Woodstock Foundation, Inc., a charitable non-profit institution.
