Jay Craven’s Northern Borders to play Chesterfield and Walpole


CHESTERFIELD, N.H. - Award-winning director Jay Craven will present his most recent Vermont film, "Northern Borders," at two local dates, as part of his New Hampshire barnstorming tour. Each screening will include an introduction and post-film discussion led by director Craven. The upcoming dates are: Monday, Aug. 25, 7:30 p.m., in the Chesterfield Town Hall, Chesterfield, N.H. and Tuesday, Aug. 26, 7:30 p.m., in the Walpole Town Hall, Walpole, NH

Northern Borders was shot in Vermont and in Chesterfield, N.H., and it’s based on the award-winning Howard Frank Mosher novel that was recently declared by The London Guardian as one of the "Top Ten Books Featuring Grandparents."

"Northern Borders" stars Academy Award nominees Bruce Dern ("Nebraska") and Geneviève Bujold ("Anne of a Thousand Days," "King of Hearts") and Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick ("Moonrise Kingdom" and "Before Midnight"). The picture also features 2010 Tony Award nominee Jessica Hecht ("Sideways," "Friends"), John Shea, Jay O. Sanders, Mark Margolis, Tom Bodett, Rusty Dewees, and John Rothman. The musical score was composed and performed by Judy Hyman and Jeff Claus of the musical Horse Flies. Additional period source music cues were provided by NH-based Great Meadows Music as written and/or performed by NH-based musicians Bob McQuilllen, Randy Miller, Laurie Andres, Cathy Whitesides, and John Taggert

Northern Borders was produced as the result of a unique partnership between Jay Craven’s non-profit Kingdom County Productions and Marlboro College, where Craven teaches film. The picture was made during a semester-long film intensive, Movies from Marlboro, where 20 young professionals worked with 34 students from 15 colleges. A 2014 Movies from Marlboro project, Peter and John, based on a novel by Guy de Maupassant, was shot this spring on Nantucket and again partnered professionals and students who earn academic credit.

Tickets for the "Northern Borders" screening will be available at the door. Prices are $12 adults; $10 seniors over 65; and $6 for students. For more information about "Northern Borders" dates and venues contact Jay Craven (jcraven@marlboro.edu) or go to KingdomCounty.org.
