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 Five – Ceres’ Children
Part Five takes a deeper look at some of Vermont’s cherished traditions: participatory democracy and the conservation ethic, from the ideas of George Perkins Marsh, one of America’s first environmentalists, to contemporary volunteer groups and activist movements. The film captures 21st century debates over natural resources, then circles back in time to show how these concerns originate in the ethics of farmers, who depended on the natural world for their survival. The disappearance of dairy farms has raised a tough question: how big is too big? How can Vermont survive in a world economy? Can Vermont be a model for small, local and self-sufficient farming?
