Reviving the Freedom Mill
Premiered September 2013 at the Camden International Film Festival,
When environmentalist Tony Grassi takes a crazy gamble to rehab an abandoned Mill, he inspires both skepticism and hope that its revived bond with the river will breath new life into the town of Freedom, Maine. With the help of a colorful team of builders, masons, engineers and architects, he sets out to reconstruct a forgotten historical treasure. Can his 21st century vision of conservation re-power this rural community, which is now welcoming a new generation of young farmers?
