In the News: Pine St closure coming; Hollywood filming movie here

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"The Department of Public Works is warning residents that a section of road on Pine Street leading to Bellingham will soon be closed due to construction. 
The $55,000 project to replace a culvert pipe will occur over about a three-week period starting Monday, but the road will be closed to public traffic all the way to the Bellingham border. 
Deacon Perotta, director of operations at the Franklin DPW, said the repair is necessary to make sure there are no flooding issues in the area. 
“We have a road problem there,” he said. “Basically, the culvert underneath the road has become impacted because of its age.”

"People in Franklin could possibly catch a glimpse of stars over the next week or so, and they’re not the ones in the sky. 
Town Administrator Jeff Nutting has confirmed that Hollywood is in town finishing up the latest iteration of “Little Women,” due out next December. The secured set is at an undisclosed location in the Forge Park industrial area and is closed to visitors. 
One of the stars said to be doing final work on the film is silver screen legend Meryl Streep, who is playing the role of Aunt March in the famous Louisa May Alcott story. Also said to be doing work here is A-lister Emma Watson, who first rose to fame as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies. She plays the role of Meg March. 
A producer for the film did not return calls for more information."

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"On Thursday, March 29, at 7 p.m. at the First Universalist Society in Franklin (FUSF), 262 Chestnut St., Franklin, the FUSF food group Home Made will screen the documentary “Theater of Life.” 
“Theater of Life” is a 2016 Canadian feature-length film written and directed by Peter Svatek about a gourmet soup kitchen created by Italian chef Massimo Bottura and 60 international colleagues, including Mario Batali, Rene Redzepi and Alain Ducasse, using food waste from Expo 2015 in Milan. 
The film addresses the issue of food waste and the 1.3 billion tons of food thrown away annually around the world — one-third of all food produced. “Theater of Life” takes pains to study the persistence and perseverance of the disenfranchised while celebrating gastronomic talent."

"Caleb Haven Martin, who attended Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter School in Franklin, died on Wednesday due to injuries he sustained in a car accident on March 17. 
Martin, a 19-year-old freshman at the University of Massachusetts–Amherst, died at the Cleveland Clinic in Mayfield Heights, Ohio, according to his obituary. He lived with his family in Senegal, where his parents, William and Katherine Martin, have a ministry. 
Martin was driving to UMass after “visiting a friend in Wisconsin when he hit a deer in the highway. As he was calling 911 he was hit by another car from behind. He was taken to a local trauma center in Cleveland with a severe brain injury, and was put into a medically induced coma so his body could heal,” according to a YouCaring page set up in Martin’s honor by Janice Thompson."

Local movie, ‘Right There’, filmed in North Attleboro, accepted by Massachusetts Independent Film Festival


Film Production Company IM Filmworks announces that its most recent film, RIGHT THERE, has been accepted by the Massachusetts Independent Film Festival. 
IM filmworks
IM filmworks
Producer/Director Nathan Suher says, “RIGHT THERE is a mash-up of several genres. It’s a silent film that on the surface is a light-hearted romantic comedy, but at its core it is also a portrait of unrequited love.” RIGHT THERE may lack dialogue, but it is not lacking sound. Musician/Composer Kevin Keough was brought on to write the score. “Kevin’s score really compliments the overall mood of the film; it’s beautiful, yet bittersweet”. 
“It’s an honor to have my film as part of the Massachusetts Independent Film Festival. Being screened with so many other terrific movies gives me a sense of great satisfaction. Knowing that all of the hard work put into this film by our cast and crew is recognized in this important way inspires me to build upon this accomplishment and set loftier goals as a filmmaker,” says Producer/Director Nathan Suher. 
RIGHT THERE will be screened at the historic Somerville Theater (55 Davis Square, Somerville, MA) on Wednesday, August 6th at 6:20pm as part of the Block 4 screening group.

Movie Night at Historical Museum - Sun, Jun 29 - "1776"


If you ever wondered what it was like to live in colonial revolutionary times, '1776' is the movie for you.
History Buffs, students, teachers and movie lovers will enjoy viewing '1776' at the Franklin Historical Museum.
1776
1776

The fun family night will benefit the Franklin Food Pantry. The price of admission is a canned good or non perishable food item.

In the days leading up to July 4, 1776, continental Congressmen John Adams and Benjamin Franklin coerce Thomas Jefferson into writing the Declaration of Independence as a delaying tactic as they try to persuade the American colonies to support a resolution on independence. As George Washington sends depressing messages describing one military disaster after another, the businessmen, landowners and farmers in Congress all stand in the way of the Declaration, and a single 'nay' vote will forever end the questions of independence. Large portions of spoken and sung dialog are taken directly from the letters and memoirs of the actual participants.

Come enjoy this informative film right before we start our annual 4th of July celebration week. The showing is at 5:00 PM on Sunday June 29th and is appropriate for the whole family. Popcorn will be served.

Remember to bring a canned good for the Franklin Food Pantry.
