Hidden Landscapes Film Series: The Great Falls Pt.I
River Valley Co-op is proud to present the first in the Nolumbeka Project's film series:
The Great Falls Pt. I
Saturday, February 13th at 2:00 PM
"Discovery, Destruction and Preservation in a Massachusetts Town"
The Hidden Landscape Project represents the joined efforts of professional, Native, and Antiquarian researchers who have generously volunteered to combine their expertise into a chronicle of research - a series of video stories that investigate the archaeological history and the modern legacy of the Northeastern Native civilization. The combined vision of so many researchers working together also represents a new approach to the long-standing and often very heated controversy that surrounds the ceremonial stone landscapes of North America. Join Doug Harris, Ceremonial Stone Landscapes researcher, Ted Timreck, director of the Hidden Landscapes films, and guest panelists for a five-part series featuring the films with panel discussions and Q & A.
Dates: Saturday, February 13 and Sunday, February 14; also, Saturdays March 6, 13, 29, all at 2 pm EST.
This series is co-sponsored by the Nolumbeka Project, River Valley Co-op, and the Karuna Center for Peace Building and a grant from the Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities. Registration is required and limited to 500. Donations are requested. Pre-screenings are available for a fee at www.twtimreck.com. Visit www.nolumbekaproject.org to register or donate.
