In The Blood-Film by Sumner McKane
September 5, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
As an innovative live “docu-exhibit”, In the Blood combines the projection of archived film and photography with authentic sound design, oral histories, and a live musical soundtrack, to tell a historical story in a live presentation.
Up to the turn of the century, it was not a board of directors or a bureaucratic system that made the logging camp and industry successful, it was the skills, integrity, and personality of individuals. In The Blood illustrates and celebrates these individuals, their character and history. The audience is taken into his rugged environment- into the camp, onto the haul roads, landings and yards, rivers and lakes. In The Blood creates a vivid world and brings the lumberman’s 19th century reality to life.
The film/exhibit employ stories and descriptions told by the men themselves, thus offering an accurate, detailed, and seemingly personal experience- as though you are sitting in a camp listening to the men. You will forget, at least fleetingly, you are watching on a screen and not sitting in a camp, driving down a river, or rolling on the yard. The illustration that In The Blood provides, sheds a new light on the character, history, and importance of these legendary Maine men. The experience is a striking virtual journey into the 19th century Maine woods.
