Pine Hawk Program: Great Falls, A Documentary
Date: Monday, October 3rd
Time: 7:00 PM in-person or Zoom
As part of the 2022 Pine Hawk Program put together by the Friends of Pine Hawk, Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Ted Timreck will screen a retrospective of his documentary film “Great Falls”, the first episode of the Hidden Landscapes series. The town of Turners Falls, Massachusetts was attempting to expand the runway to its airport. The plan called for the removal of a low hill that contains what Native American tribal representatives identify as a ritual site - a ceremonial stone landscape. The surprising discovery and the on-going effort to understand and protect what may be an extraordinary historical asset, is a dramatic story of environmental and cultural preservation. Mr. Timreck holds a research position in the Smithsonian's Arctic Studies Center at the National Museum of Natural History.
