1-Vermont Romance Stills 012Vermont International Film Foundation (VTIFF)

Presents

A Vermont Romance

Sunday, May 22, 4:00 pm

Produced in 1916, A Vermont Romance was the first feature film ever made in Vermont. This extraordinary piece of folklore, commissioned by the Vermont Progressive Party, is a window through which we can view the people and landscape of Vermont one hundred years ago.  It was filmed in many locations around the state, with a cast of amateur Vermont actors, including Jerry Hunt, one of the film’s leads, who lived in Derby Line. It is a classic melodrama, the tale of Dorothy, who loses her father and the farm, then moves to Burlington to find work, adventure, and romance.

This screening of the new digitally re-mastered version, with a new soundtrack by veteran film composer/pianist Bob Merrill, will be followed by a panel discussion with Scott Wheeler, publisher of Vermont’s Northland Journal and host of the radio program, Vermont Voices, and Bob Hunt, Education Director at the Orleans County Historical Society and great-grandson of Jerry Hunt.  Presented by the Vermont Movie Archive Project (VAMP), a new initiative of the Vermont International Film Foundation, whose mission is to preserve and make accessible Vermont’s film heritage.

The Vermont Romance Tour, which is screening the film across the state this spring, is funded in part by grants from the Community Bank, Pat Hunt, Inc., the Vermont Humanities Council, and the Vermont Historical Society, as well as Vermont Public Radio, media sponsor for the tour.

Admission: $8, available online at Catamount Arts and at the door

Donning sweater vests and each armed with a razor-sharp wit, Paul and Robbie Rescigno star in a comedy show that hearkens back to an old-school vaudeville act with contemporary material and brand-spanking new music. If “old-school” feels redundant, we only need to remind you: they’re twins. Redundancy is what they do best.
