      EVENT DETAILS
      Celebrating Vermont Filmmaker Nora Jacobson: My Mother's Early Lovers

      As part of the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Shrewsbury Co-op at Pierce’s Store, we’ll be screening a series of Vermont-oriented films in Pierce’s Garage. We are very excited to feature four films by one of Vermont’s top filmmakers, Nora Jacobson, who is best known for The Vermont Movie. Nora has agreed to join us for the viewings, allowing Q&A with the director about her films. We’ll be opening the series on Thursday, June 27th with My Mother’s Early Lovers, Nora’s first feature-length film released in 1998. Based on a diary found by Vermont author Sybil Smith (who was co-writer of the film), the movie centers on a young woman’s exploration of her mother's past, uncovering a secret at the heart of her family's history. NPR called it “a wonderful film...subtle, thoughtful, funny...” Run time is 103 minutes. Attendance is limited to 24 adults.  Pay what you wish for tickets (suggested donation $10) -- proceeds will go to cover the cost of the film series and for Nora's travel expenses.
