Description

Place: Melva Lind Interpretive Center

Time: Wednesday, February 18, 2015, 11:30am

In this documentary, produced by Alec Johnson and Kenny Blumenfeld, they explore Minnesota's winter as both a scientific topic and a social and cultural experience. They blend concise and engaging descriptions of its meteorological plot-points, with the candid sentiments of the people who work, play, suffer, and otherwise live with it. We revel in its beauty, we laugh at our confounding relationships with it, and we mourn its ongoing demise. This is the story of our region's most iconic season; This is the Story of Winter. They will share their insights in the making of the documentary.
