River (1980)

About the Film

Ofield explored the Hudson River from source to mouth, filming river residents, fishermen, Pete Seeger's strawberry festival, model boat builders, ex-loggers, industries and environmental groups and what he terms "living history" -- the folklore of older residents who had experienced the Hudson before the advent of intensive commercial traffic. This clip is from the original PBS hour.
