A Woodstock Vermont Film Series feature documentary
Streaming Online, April 8-11
WOODSTOCK, VT … Billings Farm & Museum’s 11th Annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series features the inspiring documentary, River City Drumbeat, a powerful story of music, love, and legacies set in the American South.
For nearly 30 years, Edward “Nardie” White has offered a path to empowerment for African-American youth in Louisville, KY through his River City Drum Corps. White has dedicated his life to teaching communities about their Pan-African roots, but with retirement approaching, it is time to train his successor. Set against the backdrop of the American south and featuring glorious drum battles, this uplifting film is a timely reminder of the incredible change one person can create.
The Woodstock Vermont Film Series is produced by Billings Farm & Museum with generous support from local sponsors. Lead sponsors include the Woodstock Inn & Resort and the Ellaway Group.
