Monadnock: The Mountain that Stands Alone Documentary Film

June 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The award-winning film Monadnock: The Mountain that Stands Alone is a one-hour documentary from filmmaker Daniel J. White, New Hampshire PBS, and Rabbit Ear Films. On June 26, 2024 at 7:00 pm, the Historical Society of Cheshire County will offer a free viewing of the film and host a Q/A with the film’s director Daniel White, Historical Society director Alan Rumrill, and Joyce Heywood, Abenaki descendant with ties to the Monadnock region. Rumrill and Haywood also appear in the film. Filmed over 10 years on and around the mountain, the documentary Monadnock: The Mountain that Stands Alone uses live cinematography, original music, and historical archival imagery to tell the story of the original inhabitants of the region, those who were inspired by the mountain- Mark Twain, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Abbott Thayer, and Amos Fortune and the hard work of those who work to preserve the mountain, including money from children’s piggy banks, to save “our” mountain.
