Director Tony Stone To Discuss 'Peter & The Farm' At Millerton Screening

MILLERTON, N.Y.- The Moviehouse in Millerton is excited to partner with Pine Plains Memorial Hall to bring Tony Stone's film "Peter and the Farm" to the community as part of The Moviehouse FilmWorks Forum series.

The event - Sunday at 11 a.m. - is free and open to all who wish to attend - tickets are not required. After the film, there will be a community discussion led by the film's Director and Cinematographer, Tony Stone.

Tony Stone is an American independent filmmaker, whose notable works include the music video for R.E.M.'s "It Happened Today", and the films Severed Ways and Out of Our Minds. He also co-owns the Basilica Hudson performance space with his wife, musician, and Producer of the film Melissa Auf der Maur.

The film features Peter Dunning - a rugged individualist in the extreme, a hard-drinking loner and former artist who has burned bridges with his wives and children and whose only company, even on harsh winter nights, are the sheep, cows, and pigs he tends on his Vermont farm.

Peter is also one of the most complicated, sympathetic documentary subjects to come along in quite some time, a product of the 1960s counterculture whose poetic idealism has since soured. For all his candor, he slips into drunken self-destructive habits, cursing the splendors of a pastoral landscape that he has spent decades nurturing. Imbued with an aching tenderness, Tony Stone’s documentary is both haunting and heartbreaking, a mosaic of its singular subject’s transitory memories and reflections—however funny, tragic, or angry they may be.

The Moviehouse is located at 48 Main Street in Millerton, and can be reached at 518-789-0022.
