Movie Discussion Group: Land for a City on a Hill - Alex Krieger's iconic tour of Boston (4:00)
Monday, April 26, 2021, 4:00 PM until 5:00 PM
All members on the Movie Group email list will receive a Zoom link.
BHV's Frank Mead introduces our next Movie Group pick, Land for a City on a Hill:
"This brief documentary film is a wonderful visual survey of the Boston waterfront(s) with commentary by Alex Krieger, a friend and prof of urban planning at Harvard’s Grad School of Design. I know you will find it as entertaining as I have; you will learn much about the evolution of our waterfronts from the earliest decades of shipping onward. I guarantee it will make you want to visit many of these sites again and see them in a totally different light.”
This film is also relevant to the program scheduled just after it on April 26 at 5:30 p.m., “Conversations with Bob Mannino,” on Boston Harbor.
Members are encouraged to watch the film prior to joining the conversation. Available to stream for free here.
