This is about the Howe family. And their farm.
In 1939, Carolyn Howe got married. One of her wedding presents was a 16mm movie camera. She took pictures of life around her in Falls Village, Connecticut.
She became interested and started experimenting with color and composition.
There is no telling where her talents could have taken her. Hollywood? But her creative abilities took her in a different direction. She stayed on the farm.
And she started taking documentary films about life on that farm.
She was right there when steel came along…
That baby grew up to become my friend, Pete Howe, who you can meet in Pine Plains Views in Wednesday Jam. Pete and his brother, Jim, found these old movies and projected them on a wall and videoed them with a home VHS camcorder. All I did was some honest editing and set them to music.
Carolyn and her sons had done the rest.
