The Arboretum Up the Street is the latest film from Studio Michaelino. The film features a little bit of history and a lot of personal reflection on the renowned Highland Botanical Park, which is an exquisite arboretum just a few minutes walk from the filmmaker’s front door. Because the city parks we know have “always been there”, the public no longer remembers that many parks often had a controversial beginning where park advocates had to wage a political fight to create each treasure of “space and place and green.” In some cities, the park champions lost that battle. This film give visual proof that the residents of Rochester, New York are blessed because, there, the makers of parks won. This is a five minute film.
The Arboretum Up the Street will premiere at the 2018 Fast Forward Film Festival to be held at The Little Theater and the George Eastman Museum. The filmmaker hopes to greatly expand this film once time and resources become available.
Tickets are available for both April 2018 events (April 13 and April 14) at this link. These screenings (and the gala) WILL sell out so if you desire to attend, please purchase tickets ASAP.
