UMM Presents Maine Lumber Industry Documentary “In the Blood” on April 12
MACHIAS, Maine – The University of Maine at Machias will show the documentary film “In the Blood” at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 12 in the Performing Arts Center.
Produced by Wiscasset resident Sumner McKane, “In the Blood” combines rare video and photographs from the turn of the 20th century to tell the story of Maine’s lumber industry. The film will be presented as a docu-exhibit, blending film, still photos, and a live score performed by McKane.
“The material that I have discovered has gone unseen or heard for years,” says McKane. “The visuals are awe inspiring and stunning. The oral histories, the tales, stories, and interviews - told by the men themselves - are honest and raw, and invoke emotion and disbelief.”
Tickets are $10 for singles, $15 for couples, and free for UMM students with a valid Clipper Card. Tickets will be sold at the door.
The showing of “In the Blood” at UMM is part of the Libra Series, and is made possible through funding from the Libra Foundation, a Portland-based philanthropic organization founded in 1989 by the late Elizabeth P. Noyce.
