Outdoor Movie – “Pine Mud”
October 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Enjoy a socially-distanced movie under the stars at the Collingswood Grand Ballroom and Scottish Rite on Sunday, October 11 from 6:30 – 8:30pm. Brought to you by Hundred Year Films, award-winning filmmaker Jared Flesher’s fourth feature documentary explores the controversial topic of off-road vehicle damage on public land.
With a screentime of about 60 minutes, Pine Mud focuses on the vast Pinelands National Reserve of southern New Jersey, a natural resource enjoyed by photographers, hikers, paddlers, and birders from around the country. Like in many wild places, “off-roading” has grown more popular here, with powerful vehicles trampling protected sand dunes and driving circles through ancient ponds. While some of the off-roading activity is perfectly legal, provided it stays on established trails, noncompliance with the rules is widespread. As a gritty local conservationist works to protect habitat for threatened species, tensions flare with off-roading enthusiasts who fear their access to the forest will be restricted. For a deeper dive into these issues, Jared will be holding a 30-minute Q&A session after the film.
