Local Film Night – “Rocketship” and “Flying Downhill” – Tues, Jan 28, 7:00 – 9:00 PM
Join us for our first evening of films created by our friends and neighbors Bill Rogers & Fred Catalfo
1. “Rocketship”: Filmed on the streets of South Berwick & Rollinsford, this short film by Dover, NH resident Alfred Catalfo is not to be missed! (15 min.)
2. “Flying Downhill”: the story of an American Icon – Bode Miller
This film is good cinema no matter what you think about skiing. Movie producer-writer-cameraman-editor Bill Rogers worked on this bio-pic for seven years as alpine skier Bode Miller climbed to the top of the world of skiing. “Flying Downhill” is more than an action sports film. Rogers is fascinated by the man himself and how his origin as the son of hippie NH parents, inspired his sense of self and forged a very different kind of sports hero. (50 min.)
Book Discussion Group – Weds, Feb 5 at 7:00 pm
