CIFF screening of Reviving the Freedom Mill at the
Strand Theater in Rockland, Sunday, September 29th, 1:30PM
When environmentalist Tony Grassi takes a crazy gamble to rehab an abandoned Mill, he inspires both skepticism and hope that its revived bond with the river will breath new life into the rural town of Freedom, Maine. With the help of a colorful team of builders, masons, engineers and architects, he sets out to reconstruct a forgotten historic treasure.
Can his 21st century vision of conservation re-power this community, and others, who are now welcoming a new generation of young farmers?
This film will be followed by a Q&A discussion with:
Tony Grassi, David Conover (filmmaker), Jay Fischer (builder), John Piotti (executive director, Maine Farmland Trust) and Arron Sturgis (heritage expert and builder).
