The Final Mini-Doc in the Six Part Series!
The past two weeks have been amazing and equally as hectic. On November 3rd, my full 23-minute “Stories from the Emerald Necklace” documentary was finally premiered at the Emerald Necklace Conservancy’s annual meeting. I was told it was met with gasps, sighs, laughter, and applause. I have no personal recollections of this since I was transformed into a zombie-like state as soon as the screening started – unable to comprehend my surroundings, out of tune with the movie, and generally perplexed and stupefied that the big moment had finally arrived. Nevertheless, I was assured by those attending that they liked it very much. In the middle of all this commotion, I have worked as a Production Assistant on a feature film over the past two weeks – 12 hour days and little sleep. More juice on that experience here. Let’s get to my last “Story.” Roger Gottlieb, a master storyteller and author of A Spirituality of Resistance: Finding a Peaceful Heart and Protecting the Earth, recounts a time when city dwellers had to unite to save the west bank of Boston’s best kept secret, Jamaica Pond, from apartment developments. Roger is a fascinating individual and I hope you enjoy his story.
