Will be screened with the film: Farmsteaders


William Quill, a 78 yr old Newburyport native and retired college professor, paints a insightful portrait of his life as a “builder” -- both as an academic and as a manual laborer.  Through recollections and archival footage documenting the ups and downs of the restoration of his historic home, Quill creates a poignant but down to earth allegory of life itself.
