BUY TICKETS HERE Award-winning director Jay Craven will present his most recent New England film, “Northern Borders,” at 7:30pm, Friday, August 29th as part of the Hall's Local Lens Series. The screening will include an introduction and post-film discussion led by director Craven. “Northern Borders” stars Bruce Dern (“Nebraska”) and Geneviève Bujold (“Anne of a Thousand Days,” “King of Hearts”). Both Bujold and Dern have received Academy Award, Golden Globe, and Emmy nominations. Bujold has also won an Emmy and Golden Globe. Northern Borders also stars Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick (“Moonrise Kingdom” and “Before Midnight”) and 2010 Tony Award nominee Jessica Hecht (“Sideways,” “Friends”).   Others in the supporting cast include John Shea, Jay O. Sanders, Mark Margolis, Tom Bodett, Rusty Dewees, and John Rothman. Northern Borders was shot in Vermont and New Hampshire, and it’s based on the award-winning Howard Frank Mosher novel that was recently declared by The London Guardian as one of the “Top Ten Books Featuring Grandparents.” It tells the story of ten year-old Austen Kittredge, who is sent to live on his grandparents’ Kingdom County Vermont farm, where he has wild adventures and uncovers long-festering family secrets. It’s 1956 and Austen experiences rural Kingdom County as a place full of eccentric people including his stubborn grandparents, whose thorny marriage is known as the Forty Years War. Initially feeling stuck in this fractured household, young Austen plans a quick exit but ends up stranded with no choice but to navigate and endure. A humorous and sometimes startling coming-of-age story, Northern Borders evokes Vermont’s wildness, its sublime beauty, a haunted past, and an aura of enchantment. Craven, who has strong connection to Wellfleet, has made six feature films including “Disappearances” (2007 with Kris Kristofferson) and “Where the Rivers Flow North” (1994 with Rip Torn and Tantoo Cardinal). His films have played 73 festivals, including Sundance—with special screenings at The Smithsonian and Lincoln Center. Craven’s commitment to New England place-based filmmaking was recently profiled by Orion Magazine that wrote: “Jay Craven has come closer than any other filmmaker to realizing (American poet, essayist, and film theorist) Vachel Lindsay’s dream of a vital regional cinema that embodies the character and genius of a place in all its mystery, magnificence, and pain.”
