On a rainy Saturday evening the documentary “Work of 1000″ held its premiere viewing at the Richardson-Mees Theater at Lawrence Academy in Groton, MA.
The film is about a self-admitted “ordinary” person, Marion Stoddard (below), who pushed relentlessly for the cleanup of one of Massachusetts’ most polluted rivers, the Nashua and ignited an environmental movement in Massachusetts and beyond.
I encourage everyone reading this to visit the “Work of 1000″ website to learn more about the film and the various educational resources built up around it.
The film was produced by Susan Edwards and directed by Dorie Clark. Bob Nesson was the DP and it was edited by Keith Wasserman.
Here are a few photographs from the premiere and the after-party…
That’s Marea Santos, who was orchestrating the evening.
Ed Howe and John Coté (Perpetual e-Motion) performed the theme song for the film live and also got people dancing at the party afterwards. Fiddle, guitar, and didgeridoo… what could be better?
