Divide in Concord


Director Kris Kaczor, Producer David Regos, and film subjects Jean Hill and Janet Rothrock will attend in person!

Details: 2014, USA, 82 min
Director: Kris Kaczor
Synopsis: Divide in Concord is a feature-length documentary that follows the entertaining tale of banning bottled water in small town America. In 1775, Concord patriots fired the infamous ‘shot heard round the world’ that began a Revolution and defined a nation. Now a local eighty-four year-old woman has waged another seemingly unwinnable battle. For three years Jean Hill has been trying to rid the town of single-serve plastic bottles of water. Complete with strong opposition from local merchants and the bottled water industry, Jean is once again leading the controversial crusade.
