‘Hardwater’ served at Coffee House

Jan 02, 2013
“Hardwater,” a 2012 documentary from Floating Hat Productions, LLC, will be screened Friday night, Jan. 11 at Thomaston’s Highland Coffee House.

Thomaston — Georges River Land Trust and the Highlands Coffee House will present the second screening in their It’s a Wild Life winter film series Friday, Jan. 11. This exciting series of films celebrate the wild and wonderful ways we live our life on the land and water in Maine. Films screen at 7:00 p.m. on the second Friday of each month all winter at the Highlands Coffee House on Mai Street/Route 1. Admission is free.

The series’ second film is “Hardwater,” directed by Ryan Brod and Daniel Sites. This Maine-made, feature-length documentary pays homage to our state’s tribal, oft-misunderstood ice fishing sub-culture. It is a story about a treasured Maine tradition, shared passion for storytelling and the ways in which ice fishing brings people together during the harshest of seasons.

The series is part of Georges River Land Trust’s annual Walks & Talks series, an effort to introduce the community to the wonderful resources available to them in the St. George River watershed. Upcoming films to be screened are “In the Blood” on Feb. 8; and “Turning Tail” on March 8.

Organized in 1987, the Georges River Land Trust works to conserve the ecosystems and traditional heritage of the Georges River watershed region through permanent land protection, stewardship, education and outdoor experiences. The watershed extends from Montville in the north to Port Clyde and Cushing in the south and includes streams, ponds, lakes, wetlands, farms, hills, mountains, blueberry barrens and forest, as well as a rich tidal estuary of salt marsh, clam flats and productive fishing grounds.
