Our Town shares the charm and character of Rhode Island’s many towns and villages – particularly the untold stories that capture the essence of local life. Resident storytellers and filmmakers are invited to choose their own subjects, capturing a town’s unique history and culture from the perspective of those who know it best. Rhode Island PBS offers technical advice and then stitches the stories together in a one-hour film.
Part fundraiser, part community builder, part documentary film, and part “day-in-the-life” scrapbook, the project offers a collection of local legends, historical events, and personal memoirs from the tight-knit community of Rhode Island. Enjoy this special Our Town marathon, and stay tuned for more episodes to come!
