Freedom & Unity: The Vermont Movie is a six-part collaborative documentary produced by several dozen Vermont filmmakers. Using cinema verite, personal stories, rare footage, compelling interviews and original re-enactments they’ve created a living testament that explores the history and contemporary culture of the Green Mountain State. Vermonters past and present – from Abenakis and early settlers, runaway slaves, farmers, historians, politicians, activists, newcomers moving back-to-the-landers – tell how one small state has made a very big difference.
