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.

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.
