Natasha Mayers: an Un-Still Life takes Vermont by Storm
The Natasha Mayers: an Un-Still Life team spent the weekend of October 16-17 in the Green Mountain State, sharing the film with audiences in Burlington and Rutland County, and getting some creative inspiration from uniquely-Vermont cultural attractions and scenery.
Natasha, Anita, and Geoff made a point to visit Glover before the weekend screenings to hit up the Bread and Puppet Theater headquarters and the Museum of Everyday Life. Then, they made their way to Burlington, where the film was screened in the Vermont International Film Festival as part of the Made Here Film Festival official selections on Saturday.
On Sunday the team hosted a screening and community conversation with the Rutland County Democrats and Castleton Indivisible. The event included a display of activist art from three local artists – Grace Brigham, Carolyn Shattuck, and Steve Halford – as well as a display of Natasha’s and ARRT! pieces. The small but lively audience of 30 artists and activists had an engaging conversation after the screening about the film and the opportunity for art activism in the Marble Valley area. The two activist groups are excited to organize planning meetings for future art builds that will amplify local issues.
Vermont audiences can see the film next on October 28 at 8pm: Natasha Mayers: an Un-Still Life will be broadcast on Vermont PBS as part of the Made Here Film Festival selects!
