love movies? so does the Big Eddy S

neak previews. Absorbing documentaries. Retrospectives. And Q&A sessions with the people who made them all. The upper Delaware River region’s very own celebration of cinema, the Big Eddy Film Festival, flickers to life September 18 and runs through the 20th. Screened inside the historic Tusten Theatre in the blossoming hotspot of Narrowsburg, NY, the films represent a collection of truly artistic and entertaining fare. • Opening night, September 18, will feature “Tumbledown,” starring Rebecca Hall and Jason Sudeikis, previously seen at the Tribeca Film Festival but not being generally released until Valentine’s Day 2016. Synopsis: Years after the accidental death of her folk-legend songwriter husband Hunter, Hannah (Hall) has yet to fully accept her small-town life in Maine without him. She spends her days contemplating a book she'd like to write on Hunter's life and work, and indulging in a fling with a local meathead (Joe

Kutsher’s Country Club circa 1950s

Manganiello). But when she is approached by brash New York academic Andrew (Sudeikis) intent on penning his own biography of her late husband, Hannah is roused into action. Initially wary of his intentions, she decides to collaborate with him on the book, leading them both to surprising discoveries. As Hannah and Andrew dig deeper into Hunter's life and death, they come to their own revelations about what it means to live, and to love. AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2015

• Saturday, September 19 will feature several documentaries on notable artists, including “Almost There,” a coming-of(old)-age tale of 83year-old Peter Anton, who lives in isolation until he’s discovered by the filmmakers. Also don’t miss “J. Morgan Puett: A Practice From “Almost There” of Be(e)ing,” focusing on the founder of the Mildred’s Lane artistic enclave in nearby Beach Lake, PA. • After a “Meet the Filmmakers” reception Saturday evening, Big Eddygoers will travel back to 1955 via “The Night of the Hunter,” the classic thriller starring Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters and Lillian Gish. • The incredible life of the former Kutsher’s Country Club in nearby Monticello, NY – and its slow death 100 years after its birth – are engagingly, nostalgically and sometimes painfully chronicled in the “Welcome to Kutsher’s” documentary, to be screened Sunday, September 20. Popcorn and homemade gourmet treats will be available at all screenings. Located at 210 Bridge Street in Narrowsburg, the Tusten Theatre offers ample next-door parking. Tickets are $15 for opening night, $10 per film event Saturday and Sunday, $100 for an all-access pass and $40 for a six-pack. To order and find out specific screening times, call 845-252-7576. Produced by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance, the fourth annual Big Eddy Film Festival will have more movies to announce as September draws closer – including family and kid-friendly offerings – so check out bigeddyfilmfest.com and facebook.com/BigEddyFilmFestival for the latest!

Ever wonder why we look our best? f you’re struck by the beauty of a particular park, main street, or corner of Sullivan County’s Catskills, chances are you’re seeing the fruits of an incredible volunteer program. Launched 15 years ago, Sullivan Renaissance has touched virtually every hamlet in the county’s 1,000 square miles. And soon you’ll see plaques like the one pictured, marking many Renaissance project sites. You’re welcome to stop at most of these locations and take in the sights, sounds and smells of beautification – and if you see a volunteer, express some thanks for the wonderful work they do, at no cost but to themselves, to make the place they call home (and you call paradise) that much

Monticello grabbed that mantle 200 years ago, but Hurleyville landed a railroad line first, and a bustling community was born.

“The truth is, we’re all about food,” nods Richard.“That goes back to who we serve.” Nutritious, homegrown fruits, vegetables and meats are at the core of the Center’s programming, where mealtime serves a crucial role in ensuring the good health of the children and adults it serves. Being off-campus, the Hurleyville Market is open to the general public and is a quiet, attractive spot to sample not only the products of the Center’s biodynamically-certified farm but of many other local growers, bakers and artisans.
