Film Talkback Series
Watching compelling films and engaging afterwards in lively discussions with subject matter experts offers some of the best of Rappahannock. Film-talkbacks included first-run movies as well as documentaries that shine light on a variety of significant topics.
The Biggest Little Farm
The documentary follows a couple who buy 200 acres of barren land north of LA and establish a modern-day Eden of organic food, ecological restoration, and environmental diversity. But this didn’t happen without overcoming a series of unwelcome realities from pests and predators, to wildfires and wind, to biblical rainstorms. Post-movie discussion was led by local farmers who examined the implications for Rappahannock county.
A showing of The Post, the inside story of the Washington Post’s first female publisher and their decision to publish the Pentagon Papers. Co-sponsored by Foothills Forum and RAAC, and followed by a discussion featuring two local luminaries: Jay Ward Brown, an eminent First Amendment lawyer, and Andy Alexander, former ombudsman for The Washington Post.
Farm Tour Edition
A special Farm Tour Edition of RAAC Talk-Back featured a series of farming-related films over two nights. After the showing, we had guest speakers from our partnering organizations: Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and the American Conservation Film Festival.
The story of the Boston Globe investigation into allegations of abuse in the Catholic church in Boston. Co-hosted by Foothills Forum & RAAC, with discussion following film with former Washington Post ombudsman Andy Alexander, and Martin Baron, the former editor at The Boston Globe responsible for initiating the investigation, now Executive Editor of The Washington Post.
