Remembering Howard Frank Mosher
Sunday, December 3, 2017 - 6:30pm • Whittemore Theater
Screening and discussion by Jay Craven
Filmmaker Jay Craven worked closely with the renowned Vermont writer Howard Frank Mosher, who died in January 2017, making five films based on his stories since 1985. Jay will present reflections on his 28-year collaboration with Howard and a screening his first feature film based on one of his novels, Where the Rivers Flow North. The picture tells the story of an aging logger and his Native American mate, who face the extinction of their way of life when a local power company plans to build a dam that will flood them off their land. Like most of Mosher’s stories, Where the Rivers Flow North conjures larger-than-life characters and articulates a vivid sense of Vermont rooted in Howard’s historical imagination of place—our place. Showtimes are 1pm at the Latchis Theater, Brattleboro, and 6:30pm at the Whittemore Theater, Marlboro College, and tickets are available at the door or at sevendaystickets.com: $12 for adults, free for students and Marlboro College faculty and staff.
