Ruth Stone’s Vast Library of the Female Mind

December 15, 2021, 7:00 PM

Vermont poet Ruth Stone is still not well known outside of the poetry world, though she won accolades and vaunted accolades such the National Book Award. Now, Vermont filmmaker Nora Jacobson, many of whose films have been favorites at the Maine International Film Festival, returns to Waterville with the premiere of a new feature, 12 years in the making, that takes us into the world and life of a truly remarkable woman. Beloved by many, Ruth’s house in Goshen, Vermont became a mecca for students, poets, friends and family members. There she inspired people to make art and write, not only through activities such as the "poetry game", but by providing solace and nurture, surrounded by nature and camaraderie.

A Q&A session with filmmaker Nora Jacobson will follow the screening. Granddaughter and artist, Bianca Stone, will be in attendance.

(Not rated, 117 min., 2021)

Regular admission prices apply.
