“The Great Falls” Screening and Discussion

March 23, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Screen the film “The Great Falls”

On Wednesday March 23 at 7 pm, join the Bidwell House Museum Online for a screening of Ted Timreck’s documentary film “The Great Falls: Discovery, Destruction and Preservation in a Massachusetts Town.” When the town of Turner’s Falls wanted to expand the runway of their local airport, they discovered a ceremonial stone landscape on a nearby hill that was due to be removed. This surprising discovery and the efforts made to protect it, tell a dramatic story of environmental and cultural preservation. The film is part of the “Hidden Landscapes” project, an effort by hundreds of professional, Native and antiquarian researchers to explore the archaeological legacy of Eastern Native Civilization.

The film runs about 80 minutes and will be screened via Zoom. During the screening we will stop at 3 or 4 intervals to have a quick discussion and answer any questions viewers may have.

Since the mid 70’s, Filmmaker Ted Timreck has specialized in portraits of artists for PBS and anthropological programming for the Smithsonian Institution. He holds a research position at the National Museum of Natural History in the Anthropology Department and he has worked extensively with Smithsonian scientists documenting field research, producing video and electronic media for the National Museum along with independent programming for public and cable television. You can learn more about him at http://twtimreck.com/

This program will be held via Zoom and details for how to access the event will be sent via email a few days in advance.

This program is supported through a grant from Housatonic Heritage.
