Brunswick - The Film


Brunswick, A Film by Nate Simms

Brunswick is a film about landscape change, told through the personal story of a farmer’s lifelong connection to his now-threatened land.  The film weaves together the plight of Sanford Bonesteel, an aging farmer in his 90s, with the dynamics of small-town politics as a residential development is planned on Sanford’s former land. 

The film takes place in Brunswick, New York, a small country town facing the challenge of balancing  economic growth with the preservation of its rural character.  It is a story both specific to Brunswick and yet recognizable to rural communities all over the United States.

Brunswick will be shown at the Catskill Film Festival on Sunday, January 29th
