Movie Night at the Library: WildHeart

We are hosting a movie night on June 12 at 6 PM featuring the PBS Nature documentary “Wildheart” (directed by Nigel Pope, 2023, 53 mins) about the Scottish Highlands.

The documentary uses historical figures as a calendar to chart the natural fortunes of Caledonia and includes dramatic recreation.

About the documentary (PBS): Few beings have lived to see a 500-year sweep of history – and at a time of such unprecedented change. This is the remarkable biography of a noble Scots Pine tree, ancient, gnarled, and weather worn. It stands in the Scottish Highlands, exactly where it landed as a tiny seed some five centuries ago – and where it greeted a young Mary, Queen of Scots, who was then just a child herself. It becomes the heart of a magnificent highland wilderness, home to eagles and wolves, strutting capercaillies and feisty red squirrels.

Light refreshments will be provided. Please register at info@ellsworthlibrary.net or call 207.667.6363.

This is an after-hours program; library services will be unavailable.
