    ROCKLAND —  Local filmmakers Susan Aasen and Scott Sell are making a documentary about Rockland’s continual evolution — as told by Rockland. On-camera interviews are woven together to tell a story of Rockland’s burgeoning creative community, underpinned by the arts and institutions like the Farnsworth and CMCA. The documentary explores the spirit of collaboration that binds the city together across all kinds of creative pursuits.

    View a short rough cut of the film featuring friends and neighbors, Wednesday, September 25, from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m., in the Farnsworth Art Museum’s auditorium. Join the filmmakers for a Q&A and offer thoughts about the film and Rockland in general.

    As an ABC News journalist, Susan Aasen received two Peabody Awards and was a five-time Emmy winner.

    With a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University, Scott Sell has been a creative writing and multimedia instructor, online news producer, and in-house filmmaker at the Island Institute. He’s now a producer and editor at Compass Light Productions.

    This program is part of Uncork the Arts, sponsored by J. Edward Knight Insurance.
