Saturday, October 17th, Peter Callahan the director of Against the Current, will be at the Downing Film Center for Q&A after the screening. This film was shot in the Hudson Valley in September and October of 2008. Here is a little preview of the movie:
Against the Current is the story of Paul Thompson, (Joseph Fiennes), a man who sets out to swim the entire length of the Hudson River — all 150 miles, from Troy, NY to Manhattan. Joining Paul is his best friend since childhood, Jeff (Justin Kirk) and Liz (Elizabeth Reaser), a teacher with nothing better to do during her summer break. Together, the trio embarks upon an unusual road trip, a three-week adventure down the Hudson.
