REEL World – Divide in Concord

From Sat. Nov. 21 to Friday Dec. 4 REEL World will feature the documentary Divide in Concord.

Divide in Concord is a feature-length documentary that follows the entertaining tale of banning bottled water in small town America.

In 1775, Concord patriots fired the infamous ‘shot heard round the world’ that began a Revolution and defined a nation. Now a local eighty-four year-old woman has waged another seemingly unwinnable battle. For three years Jean Hill has been trying to rid the town of single-serve plastic bottles of water. Complete with strong opposition from local merchants and the bottled water industry, Jean is once again leading the controversial crusade.

“A fascinating, entertaining look at how persistence and citizen action still means something in a corporate-controlled society.”  Michael Moore
