John W. Barry, Poughkeepsie Journal 12:04 p.m. EDT August 20, 2014
WMHT, a Troy-based public television station, will tonight broadcast the television premiere of "To Be Forever Wild," a documentary about the Catskill Mountains with strong local links.
The film, directed by Saugerties filmmaker David Becker, will be shown at 7:30 p.m. tonight.
The movie's cinematographer, Kazio Sosnowski, graduated from Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson and several musicians whose work is featured in the film are Bard graduates.
"To Be Forever Wild" offers an in-depth view of the Catskills, which can be seen from Route 9 in Poughkeepsie, northern Dutchess County and while crossing the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge. Becker looks at individuals who live and work in the Catskills and analyzes the region's history while offering contemporary views of many of the legendary region's landmarks.
According to WMHT, "To Be Forever Wild," is a "deceptively simple film, focusing not on the grand sweeping events that shaped our nation's history, but on the smaller everyday moments in the Hudson River Valley that have a remarkable ability to stir us on a deeply emotional level."
