"Flood Bound" Vermont PBS will be re-airing Flood Bound August 27th 2015 (along with Rob Koier's film Strength of the Storm.) They interviewed me last week for their show "Connect." I meant to do a better job thanking my neighbors who are in the film and my friends and neighbors who helped make it, but they threw me off when they started the show calling me a "Filmmaker and media mogul."
It's important to get this film into as many hands as possible. It is INSPIRING and UPLIFTING & will renew your faith in humanity.
As weather related disasters increase strong community bonds are the best plan for emergency preparedness.
Flood Bound is a fascinating, gripping movie. The people in this small beautiful Vermont town seem to take over the movie as they talk about what they did and what they felt when a hurricane flooded their town. It is wonderful how they helped each other, but just as wonderful is how it is all conveyed. As people speak, - and they are very different people responding in different ways - you feel their courage, their fear, and their astonishment at what was happening to them. It is one fascinating conversation and a stirring portrait of a town’s response to trouble. The movie is quiet and its genuine sympathetic feel holds you to the end. At the end, you can feel the pleasure in the town that they could rise to the occasion and take care of each other. ~Jeanne Winner
