Strength of the Storm


On August 28th, 2011, tropical storm Irene devastated many communities across southern and central Vermont. One week later, The Vermont Workers' Center, a local non-profit, hired me to document the recovery effort. A very powerful story of a community coming together and organizing to create change emerged out the wreckage. I made a five minute trailer and a fifty-five minute long film about the recovery effort at Weston mobile park in Berlin, Vermont. More than just a film, this was a transformative experience for myself and the people that became the main characters of the movie. Their courage and resilience in the face of disaster is inspiring.

For more information, upcoming screenings and to see the five minute trailer visit http://www.strengthofthestorm.org/ and to find out about The Vermont Workers' Center's ongoing Put People First campaign visit http://www.workerscenter.org/
