Join us for a Film Screening of ‘Woven in Time; The Narragansett Salt Pond Preserve‘, a RIDOT and Federal Highway Administration sponsored documentary about the discovery and preservation of the only surviving, pre-contact Native American Village on the New England Coast (1100-1400.) Archaeologists revealed the undisturbed remains of the area in the 1980’s.    Woven in Time is a film depicting the story of the Narragansett Salt Pond Preserve and the fight to protect it.  

Spending a year and a half interviewing over fifty people from the Narragansett, the State of Rhode Island, historians, archaeologists, anthropologists and local citizens, Marc Levitt has constructed a film of extraordinary beauty and poetry.

 The film is directed and produced by Marc Levitt, with animation by Dennis Hlynsky, edited by Irene Su, Director of Photography Richard Goulis, additional photography by Thomas Payne and Mike Turecamo, drone photography by Kyla and Andrew Trench and music by both local and international musicians including Campbell Brothers, Phil Edmonds, Hang Massive, Thawn Harris, Steve Jobe, Matt McClaren, Moondog, Jesse Robbins (Red Eagle), Josh Schurman, Cathy Clasper-Torch, and What Cheer Brigade. Frances Bisogno is the sound engineer and recording took place at Jack Gauthier’s Lake West Studio. The Executive Producer is Michael Hébert.

 After the 57 minute documentary, Director Marc Levitt will lead a Q and A session.
