Peter and the Farm
Directed by Tony Stone
91 minutes | Documentary


Peter Dunning is the proud proprietor of Mile Hill Farm, which sits on 187 idyllic acres in Vermont. The land’s 38 harvests have seen the arrivals and departures of three wives and four children, leaving Peter with only animals and memories. The arrival of a film crew causes him to confront his history and his legacy, passing along hard-won agricultural wisdom even as he doubts the meaning of the work he is fated to perform until death. Haunted by alcoholism and regret, Peter veers between elation and despair, often suggesting to the filmmakers his own suicide as a narrative device. He is a tragedian on a stage it has taken him most of his life to build, and which now threatens to collapse from under him. At once a postcard from paradise and a cautionary tale for our times, PETER AND THE FARM sifts through the potential energy of a human life, that which is used and that which is squandered.

Set in the year 2030, the rock opera begins with the story’s hero, Paolo, being chosen as the first human to travel to Mars to set the stage for a human colony that will follow.  But there’s a catch: it will be a one-way trip.  In taking on this mission Paolo must leave behind forever everything he holds dear—including his loving wife Cassandra—for he will never be able to return to Earth.


But trouble is brewing.  Shortly after he lands on Mars, catastrophic events from global warming and nuclear terrorism on earth cause communication links to go down, and Paolo is left alone and completely cut off from human contact. Meanwhile, just as chaos on Earth closes the window on future missions, the space agency recruits Cassandra to fly to Mars.  As Cassandra lifts off from Earth, she does not know if Paolo is still alive, and Paolo does not know that she is on her way to join him.


During the ensuing, interminable months of loneliness Paolo sinks deeper into despair, while Cassandra comes into her own power.  Finally, using only manual controls, Cassandra crash lands on Mars, where Paolo finds her.  Does Cassandra survive the crash? The opera ends with this and other questions left to your imagination.


Peter Alexander and Johannah Harkness of Bath are award-winning songwriters and the cornerstones of Hollowbody Electric Band. “We are really excited to perform ‘One Way Trip to Mars’ in the intimate space of the Frontier Theater,” said Alexander. “We’ve adapted the production for the venue, telling the story through sound, light, and video.  We are especially grateful to the many amazing performers and technical experts who have joined with us to make it a thoroughly engaging piece of theater.” You can learn more about Hollowbody Electric Band at www.hollowbody.us

Community Conservation: Finding the Balance Between Nature and Culture is a new film created by Mark Ireland of MI Media.  Presented by Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust and Maine Coast Heritage Trust, this documentary, shot throughout four seasons, profiles four active land trusts in different regions of Maine, demonstrating their efforts in making conserved lands available to all members of their community.


Practitioners of community conservation look deeply at the traditions and needs of their own community members to forge access to preserved lands and create projects that address those needs.  The four land trusts filmed provide great examples of community conservation:  Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust (BTLT) works with gardeners, both local and from away (Africa!)  BTLT projects also range from supporting shellfish harvesters to supporting the faith community.  At Downeast Lakes Land Trust, community members served include school children, local crafts people, hunters and fishermen.  The Androscoggin Land Trust partners with various organizations to create access and programs for the immigrant community.  The Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust runs an Eco Camp which helps fund the cost for struggling local families with tourist dollars and the trust also runs a local campground.


The beauty of Maine, from coast to mountains, farmland to deep forests is captured in this documentary featuring hikers, kayakers, kids fishing, farmers, balsam tree-tippers, canoe-builders and many more, captured in all four seasons.


Following the film, the film maker and leaders from Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust and Maine Coast Heritage Trust will be on hand for a question and answer session.

With a voice of grit and gravel, roots musician Samuel James sings with an authenticity lost in time. A modern guitar master, James' skill has a depth and range that seems impossible for a man with only two hands.


An award-winning songwriter, one of the world's most innovative guitar players, and a Moth-featured storyteller, James brings all of this to his amazing stage show. A live performance by Samuel James is part theratre concert, part stomping-on-the-porch dance party and part stand-up comedy.


He was born the last in a long line of performers including dancers, story tellers, choir singers, jazz pianists, and porch-stomping guitar thumpers dating back to the 1800s.


Samuel James' songwriting has been compared to Leonard Cohen's and his virtuosity on the guitar to that of Jimi Hendrix.


His critically acclaimed trilogy of albums, Songs Famed for Sorrow and Joy (2008) For Rosa, Maeve and Noreen (2009) And for the Dark Road Ahead (2012) for Toronto's Northern Blues label has gained Samuel praise not only for carrying on great traditions, but for being a true innovator.


His latest album Already Home Recordings Vol. 1  has been called a "rich narrative... fascinating... vital to our cultural dialogue."

Come hear the songs written and performed by participants in Hyde School’s Winter Singer-Songwriter Workshop. This final performance showcase, open and free of charge to the public, is the culmination of a week-long program focused on the craft of lyrical songwriting. The workshop is designed for aspiring musicians interested in perfecting their musical craft in writing, producing, or singing. They receive hands-on training from music professionals who volunteer their time to work as facilitators at the workshop. Throughout the week the students creatively learn ways to come up with lyrics, add instruments and test out chords that possibly merge well with their words, and then collaborate together to find the right balance and harmony for their songs as they edit lyrics and finalize the arc of their work. The Showcase is an opportunity for them to share their work and each year proves to be a memorable occasion for both the audience and performers.

This is not a "we ate oatmeal and walked 12 miles" narrative. It is a story rich with meaning that speaks to challenges, perseverance and friendship. It is one told through a mixture of stunning photography and humor as well.  This is a fundraiser for Teens To Trails, a local non-profit dedicated to increasing outdoor opportunities for teens.
