MOUNTAIN RIVER - The Esopus Creek: Headwaters to the Hudson
Sponsored by Willow Mixed Media
The 73 minute film, MOUNTAIN RIVER, follows the Esopus Creek, from its headwaters on Slide Mountain in New York’s Catskill Mountains, to the Ashokan Reservoir, and on to the Hudson River at Saugerties - a fascinating journey of 65 miles.
MOUNTAIN RIVER highlights the continuing challenges of climate change and ongoing conservation efforts on the creek, and it reminds us to treat the Esopus with respect.
MOUNTAIN RIVER is filled with personal stories and anecdotes and features a lively mix of vintage and contemporary photographs and images. Footage includes interviews with New YorkCity and New York State experts, local historians, and conservationists, as well as on-the-creek fly fishing plus stories from anglers and residents. Extensive aerial footage offers a new perspective on the Esopus, the Ashokan Reservoir and the Hudson River.
Music by Tim Kapeluck, Jay Ungar, Evan Pritchard, and the late Artie Traum.
MOUNTAIN RIVER is produced and directed by Glenford filmmaker Tobe Carey, and co-produced by photographer and Catskills' Fishing Guide, Mark Loete, of Chichester.
MOUNTAIN RIVER is part of Willow Mixed Media's Catskill Mountains/Hudson Valley history collection including: Deep Water: Building the Catskill Water System, Rails to the Catskills, The Catskill Mountain House and The World Around, Sweet Violets, and The First Artist in America: The Life and Times of John Vanderlyn - Artist.
