Freedom and Unity: The Vermont Movie is a six-part collaborative documentary produced by several dozen Vermont-based filmmakers. Using cinema verite, personal stories, rare footage, compelling interviews and original re-enactments they’ve created a living testament that explores the history and contemporary culture of the Green Mountain State. Vermonters past and present – from Abenakis and early settlers, runaway slaves, farmers, historians, politicians, back-to-the-landers and activists – tell how one small state has made a very big difference.
Part Three – Refuge, Reinvention and Revolution
In the mid-20th century, political pioneers like Bill Meyer, a Congressman who challenged the Cold War, and Governor Phil Hoff, whose 1962 victory set the stage for historic change, rose to take the lead in state politics. Innovation was everywhere: in the work of “talented tinkerers” like Snowflake Bentley and Thaddeus Fairbanks, in the rise of IBM, and in the creation of the Interstate highways. We see the pros and cons of the highways--the high price of “eminent domain.” Revolution was in the air—rare archival footage provides a vivid look at the "hippies," the realities of communal life and the paths of members of the counter-culture who established roots in Vermont. Who changed whom?
