Marion Abrams has filmed recovery efforts from last year's storm and flooding in Pittsfield.
Vermont Public Television is broadcasting the hour-long film, "Flood Bound."
Abrams said something amazing happened after Irene hammered her town. Residents helped each other out by schooling children, cutting hair, cooking, teaching yoga and other services.
She told Vermont Public radio she wanted people to understand and see how people faced their fears and came together.
