In Our Wake: Maine’s Maritime Heritage on Film,
produced by MBH&H in collaboration with Northeast Historic Film, consisted of two screenings of several historic films in two coastal cities—Bucksport and Rockland—that have strong maritime heritages. Through the use of home movies, travelogues, silents, and talkies, these moving pictures examined our state’s boats, harbors and people, with live commentary provided and lively audience participation encouraged. Audience members were encouraged to bring in their old home movies and films for possible addition to the collections at NHF.
"Launch of the four-masted schooner Doris Hamlin at Harrington in 1919" (see clip below) is part of the Edna Frye Collection at Northeast Historic Film and was one of many featured at the maritime film festival.
On Wednesday April 28th at 6:00pm the Boat School in Eastport will host the latest showing of the film. The next scheduled showings are:
Wednesday, May 5th at 7:00pm at the Stonington Opera House, Stonington
Saturday, May 29th at 7:30pm at Waterman's Arts, North Haven
