Photographer Markham Starr‘s new movie about one of the last independent scallop boats operating out of Point Judith will have its first public showing at Peace Dale Library on Saturday, May 21, 2016, at 2 PM.
The film takes viewers aboard the Mister G on a day trip with Captain Mike Marchetti and crew Frank Nelson and Greg Verdon.
Starr’s work focuses on vanishing ways of working life in Rhode Island and New England. He is the author of, among many others, two books in Peace Dale Library’s collection, In History’s Wake: The Last Trap Fishermen of Rhode Island and Against the Tide: The Commercial Fishermen of Point Judith. His photographs are in the permanent collections of Mystic Seaport and the Library of Congress.
The event is free and open to the public.
