Victor DeMasi lepidopterist will take you on a sunny day walk through his butterfly meadow in Redding, Connecticut. Along the way we will view some of the rare and common species he has seen there in 40 years of stewardship.  Victor will explain life histories of some of our species and how a butterfly garden promotes a diversity of Aurelian beauties.  Comments will include a discussion of butterflies in our changing environment with issues such as climate change and invasive plant species.  The complex demise of the Monarch Butterfly will receive particular emphasis.  He will go on to explore his studies in the biology of the Tiger swallowtail, one of our spectacular butterflies.

Hank Linhart, a media artist based in Brooklyn, premiers his film Blissville, An Investigation that takes us to a a remote and overlooked corner of Queens, NY. Blissville is the former name ofthe town, of about eighty houses - a triangle cut off by physical barriers from the rest of the city.  In addition to the world's largest fortune cookie factory; there is a factory with the exclusive rights for making replicas of the Statue of Liberty; a sushi factory, an Afghan bakery, and a giant car crusher. Through street interviews video maker Hank Linhart investigates the origin of the name of Blissville, and the character(s) of the town.   The video is about the tapestry of daily life and the resiliency of a small town in shadows of midtown Manhattan. The vitality of the town speaks to small towns everywhere.  The accompanying website encourages the audience to share stories, pictures and video of their town.

Arnold (Gary Farmer) rescued Thomas (Evan Adams) from a fire when he was a child. Thomas thinks of Arnold as a hero, while Arnold's son Victor (Adam Beach) resents his father's alcoholism, violence and abandonment of his family. Uneasy rivals and friends, Thomas and Victor spend their days killing time on a Coeur d'Alene reservation in Idaho and arguing about their cultural identities. When Arnold dies, the duo set out on a cross-country journey to Phoenix to retrieve Arnold's ashes.  (1998, 1 hr 28 min, PG-13)
