Mountain River Screening at the Emerson
Friday, November 11, 2022 at 4pm
MOUNTAIN RIVER was produced and directed by Tobe Carey and co-produced by Chapter President Mark Loete.
On Friday, Nov. 11 at 4pm, The Emerson Resort & Spa will present an encore screening of Mountain River for Community Week 2022. MOUNTAIN RIVER follows the Esopus Creek from its headwaters on Slide Mountain to the Ashokan Reservoir, and on to the Hudson River at Saugerties — a fascinating journey of 65 miles. Tobe Carey and Mark Loete will discuss the making of the film and the importance of sharing and preserving the history of the region, followed by the screening of the 73-minute film.
MOUNTAIN RIVER is filled with personal stories and anecdotes and features a lively mix of vintage and contemporary photographs and images. Footage includes interviews with New York City and New York State experts, local historians and conservationists, as well as on-the-creek fly fishing and stories from anglers and residents.
Admission is free. RSVP here or check-in at the door.
