LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — Catskill Art Society will present a work-in-progress screening of “My Father Was a Logger” by Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Alice Elliott at the Catskill Art Society (CAS) Arts Center at 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 9.

This video, drawn from 16-mm black-and-white footage of logging in the 1920s or 1930s depicting the labor of horses and raw manpower in an age on the cusp of industrialization, was rescued from a flooded basement in 2005.

The screening will be followed by a question-and-answer session and a wine and cheese reception. Elliott is especially interested in hearing comments from the audience and suggestions for further directions for the work. Visit www.catskillartsociety.org.
