Film and Discussion:
on Friday, February 1st at 6:30 pm at Albright Auditorium at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva
The Finger Lakes Institute invites you to this film and discussion on farmland preservation and residential development.

Brunswick is a film about landscape change, told through the personal story of a farmer's lifelong connection to his now-threatened land. The film weaves together the plight of Sanford Bonesteel, an aging farmer in his 90s, with the dynamics of small-town politics as a residential development is planned on Sanford's former land. The film takes place in Brunswick, New York, a small country town facing the challenge of balancing economic growth with the preservation of its rural character. After spending several years as a still photographer, Nate Simms became involved in documentary filmmaking. Through film, he found a new medium for his ongoing interests in natural landscapes and land conservation. Assistant Professor Jessica Hayes-Conroy will provide a perspective of broader issues stemming from farmland preservation, such as rural identity, food systems, and town planning.
