Film Days Return to Cooperstown, November 9 – 13, 2017
About Against THe odds
Curated by Margaret Parsons, founder and director of the award-winning film program at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., this year's Glimmerglass Film Days explored the concept of resilience in natural and man-made worlds. Films uncover preserving Japanese sake traditions, tenacity of Babushkas in Chernobyl, deep links between African Americans and their ancestral pasts, and the founding of Greenpeace. We traveled to South America in search of lost shamans, drugs, and cultures, and examined many other struggles closer to home.
