Neighbors and friends of East Greenwich share the untold stories of their community.

The local legends, historical events, and personal memoirs of East Greenwich, Rhode Island, are the focus in the latest edition of Our Town – an ongoing Rhode Island PBS documentary project filmed entirely by residents and their tight-knit community.

Last summer, neighbors and friends of East Greenwich became storytellers and filmmakers, capturing the stories they wanted to share in Our Town: East Greenwich. With the support of Rhode Island PBS, these stories have been woven together into a visual tapestry of nostalgia, humor, enterprise, and history – representing the life in East Greenwich through the eyes of those who know and love it best.

Our Town is a documentary project where neighbors and friends become filmmakers to tell the stories of their community.

The purpose of Our Town is to share the charm and character of Rhode Island’s towns and villages – particularly the untold stories that capture the essence of life there. Local storytellers and videographers 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 is an open resource throughout the production process, and will ultimately stitch the stories together in a one-hour film.

Part fundraiser, part community builder, part documentary film, and part “day-in-the-life” scrapbook, Our Town offers a collection of local legends, historical events, and personal memoirs from the tight-knit community of Rhode Island.
