Thoreau wrote that he “was born in the nick of time” in Concord, Massachusetts and went on to famously write about building a cabin and living at Walden Pond. This film tells the story of his life and his time at Walden Pond as well as the impact his writings have had on environmental issues, civil rights and individual thinking in our time.  Huey will introduce the film and answer questions afterward.

Johnson, Bill McKibben, Howard Zinn, Megan Marshall, Sandra Harbert Petrulionis, Spencer Crew, Darren Ranco (Penobscot), and more.  Music supervision Dillon Bustin, featuring Grey Larsen performing on Irish flute.  Major funding provided by the University of Notre Dame.
