Born to Rewild, the film:
With Bruce Springsteen's "Born To Run" and Steppenwolf's  "Born To Be Wild" alternating in his head --hence the film's hybrid title, wilderness ultratrekker John Davis traveled 5,000 human-powered miles from Sonora, Mexico to British Columbia through the Western Wildway, a mega wildlife corridor along the western spine of North America, during an epic conservation journey called TrekWest. Davis believes, if we learn to work together now, we can save what we love before it's too late. If we connect our best wild places, we will give wildlife enough room to survive and do what comes naturally -- keeping our landscapes and communities healthy.


It's about identifying problems and supporting their solutions. Taking the route of grizzlies, wolves, cougars and jaguars, John experienced their greatest challenges in getting where they need to go. This alone, however, would accomplish little. He went the extra mile, meeting conservation heroes, weaving together the citizen and science-based groups on the front lines of reconnecting and protecting wildlife corridors and animals on the move and learning about amazing projects that are key to connecting western wild places.


With some magnificent cinematography shot by the late Ed George, in whose memory the film is dedicated, and directed by Sedona filmmaker Bryan Reinhart, "Born To Rewild" is a remarkable achievement. It's a film of hope and of a big screen, visual splendor that serves as  a reminder of just how stunningly beautiful the natural landscape of America truly is and should always remain.


John Davis has been described as a triathlete meets John Muir. He is a cofounder of Wildlands Network, former editor of the journal Wild Earth, program officer at Foundation for Deep Ecology, conservation director of Adirondack Council, and ongoing volunteer land ranger in Split Rock Wildway. John lives in Essex, New York.



"Heart Of A Lion", the book:
The extraordinary saga of one wild mountain lions two-thousand-mile journey from the Black Hills of the Dakotas to the Atlantic Coast. Late one June night in 2011, an SUV collided with a large animal on a Connecticut parkway, a creature appearing as something out of New England's forgotten past. Beside the road lay a 140-pound mountain lion. Speculations ran wild, figuring the lion as somebody's exotic pet turned loose, or perhaps a ghostly survivor from a bygone century when lions last roamed the eastern United States. But facts even more fantastic soon unfolded. The lion was just three years old, a barely weaned teenager with a trail reaching back through two thousand miles of hostile terrain to the Black Hills of South Dakota. It was the farthest landbound trek ever recorded for a wild animal in America.


Here is the story of the lions two-year journey from his embattled birthplace in the Black Hills, across the Great Plains and the Mississippi River, through Midwest metropolises and remote northern forests, to his tragic finale upon Connecticut's Gold Coast. Along the way, the lion traverses land with people gunning for his kind, as well as those championing his cause. Heart of Lion is a romantic tragedy, a hero's quest, with a background lens focused upon the ambivalent nation of people this lone cat traversed. As to whether the take-home is one of hope or despair, let the reader decide. "This is one stirring account of one stirring journey-- the trek of a fellow creature though a hostile, manmade world-- and through our imaginations." --Bill McKibben, author of Earth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet


William Stolzenburg has written hundreds of magazine articles about the science and spirit of saving wild creatures. A 2010 Alicia Journalism Fellow, he is the author of Where the Wild Things Were and Rat Island, and is also a screenwriter of the documentaries Lords of Nature: Life in a Land of Great Predators and Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship. He lives in Reno, Nevada.


More and more conservationists, natural historians, and others believe that there is an ecological and moral imperative to welcome home  or even to actively reintroduce -- the creatures we eradicated as we populated this region. "To reintroduce the panther is to reintroduce a giant fear of the wild, and also a giant wonder.  It is not our duty to ask which is greater.  To have the animal is always greater.  Janisse Ray, American writer, naturalist and environmental activist.

Genre: Drama

1hr 29mins


Three undocumented teenagers—a Dominican girl, an African boy and a Peruvian girl—are just about to graduate high school in the Bronx. Like most teenagers, all they want to do is hang with their friends, fall in love, and figure out where to go to college; but unlike their American classmates, these three live with the threat of being discovered by the authorities and deported. When one of their teachers connects them with a lawyer to help them get their papers, the teens start to dig into their family histories to assist their immigration cases. As they continue to deal with the everyday problems of adolescence, the teenagers are forced to confront their past and, at the same time, fight for their future.

Citizen Jane is a timely tale of what can happen when engaged citizens fight the power for the sake of a better world. Arguably no one did more to shape our understanding of the modern American city than Jane Jacobs, the visionary activist and writer who fought to preserve urban communities in the face of destructive development projects. Director Matt Tyranuer (Valentino: The Last Emperor) vividly brings to life Jacobs’ 1960s showdown with ruthless construction kingpin Robert Moses over his plan to raze lower Manhattan to make way for a highway, a dramatic struggle over the very soul of the neighborhood.

CHORO LOUCO
Brazilian Choro has been around for over a hundred years, but in this country itʼs virtually unknown. David Grisman, Mike Marshall and a handful of others have helped introduce the music and the musicians to a larger audience, but itʼs still largely under the radar of most music listeners...Its beautiful melodies, complex harmonies, and syncopated rhythms combine elements of European folk and classical, ragtime, jazz, Latin, and African music creating a style that is uniquely Brazilian.


Based in Portland, Maine, Choro Louco are driven by their love of the music. They play monthly at Portlandʼs eclectic club Blue, and have appeared at Acoustic Artisans and Mayo Street Arts.


Members of Choro Louco come from diverse backgrounds and can be seen in various ensembles locally. Carl Dimow, flute and guitar, has played jazz, classical, and klezmer music here and abroad with the Casco Bay Tummlers, and numerous other ensembles. Nicole Rabata, flute, plays primarily celtic, classical and contemporary classical styles. Joel Eckhaus comes from an old time/jazz/pop/vaudeville background and has applied his knowledge of the ukulele to the Cavaquinho, Brazilʼs version of the uke. Kris Day plays with various bluegrass, rockabilly, and jazz bands in Portland. Eric LaPerna is best known for his percussion work with the middle eastern ensemble, Okbari, but has proven equally adept at Brazilʼs version of the tambourine, the pandeiro.

Wolfe's Neck Farm presents Forgotten Farms
Directed by Dave Simonds
Biography/Historical Documentary
1hr 5mins


Forgotten Farms examines class divides in our farm and food communities. Most people buy their food in supermarkets and don’t have a chance to meet their farmer, as the bumper sticker recommends. But in more affluent communities, farm-to-table restaurants, farmer's markets and CSAs are booming and the new farmers are celebrated.There is another farmer who is left out of the local food celebration.


New England has lost over 10,000 dairy farms in the past 50 years; fewer than 2,000 farms remain. Collectively, they tend 1.2 million acres of farmland and produce almost all of the milk consumed in New England. In our enthusiasm for the new food movement, we often overlook the farmers at the foundation of the regional agricultural economy. Only 100 years ago, New England produced most of its own food on 16 million acres of farmland. Climate change will demand that more of our food is grown closer to where we live. As we strive to revive local production, we have much to learn from dairy farmers who have been managing most of the farmland and sustaining the farm economy all along. Through conversations with farmers and policy experts, the film reconsiders the role of these vital but forgotten farmers.


Forgotten Farms gives us a glimpse into the past and a vision for a future regional food system. The documentary shows the cultural divide between the new food movement and traditional farming, highlighting the need to examine differences, develop mutual understanding, and find common ground. A truly sustainable local food system that benefits everyone will rely on all of our farmers.


“You build your farm over generations and you lose your farm in an hour.”
– Vic Ziemba, Dairy Farmer

Genre: Drama
1hr 51mins


A timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, Moonlight chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. At once a vital portrait of contemporary African-American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, Moonlight is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, Barry Jenkins’s staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are.
