Riverway admirers will get a chance to see THE RHYTHM OF THE RIVER, a new public television documentary about the Lower Wisconsin River, on the big screen after it was shown statewide on Wisconsin Public Television. Co-hosted by the Roxbury Tavern, Friends of the Lower WI Riverway (FLOW), and the Spring Green Film Club, the documentary will be shown at 2 p.m. Sunday, February 19th at the Roxbury Tavern near Sauk City. Admission is free, but if the spirit moves you… a donation to the Friends of the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway (FLOW) is appreciated to help offset costs.
The lively soundtrack is by musicians who live on the Lower Wisconsin, including the Wisconsin Dells Singers and narration is by Sarah Day of American Players Theatre. Major funding came from the Wisconsin Humanities Council, and river arts agencies like the Spring Green Area Arts Coalition and Spring Green Art Fair. Lower Wisconsin private industry like Wollersheim Winery and Culver’s as well as individuals also chipped in.
The screening will include 30 minutes that will not be seen on TV, including the story of APT coming to Spring Green in 1980, cedar strip canoe building by Dave Roeder, fish art by Bill Weege and Port Andrew’s Tippesaukee, founded 1838, the oldest European settlement in Richland County. DVDs including the documentary and extra footage will be available at the event. People who appear in the film plus the director and consultants will be present at the screenings to answer questions and share stories about the river with the public.
