Award-winning Writer/Director Isaac Artenstein captures Kim Weston at Wildcat Hill, near Point Lobos, where Kim’s grandfather Edward lived and created some of the most iconic work in 20th Century photography. Kim lives there now with his wife Gina and son Zachary, photographing, teaching and heading the Weston Scholarship, which supported the production of this documentary.
In “Growing Up Weston” we visit the lovingly preserved family home, and step into Edward’s darkroom, where Kim shows how his grandfather used only a contact printer, a light bulb and a kitchen timer to create his highly sought after masterpieces. Kim also demonstrates his own printing techniques in his own darkroom in Wildcat, where he also holds photography workshops, lectures and special presentations year-round.

Wednesday, June 19th “OCEAN FRONTIERS” This is sponsored by the Forest Theater Guild Board of Directors for our community’s benefit. THE FILM As the blue planet’s burgeoning populace faces an uncertain future, never before have the world’s oceans been called upon to serve so many, while suffering so much. To address this, people around the world have begun using new approaches to ocean management. It is a movement of scientists, businesses, farmers, fishermen, governments and citizens who care for the sea. Green Fire Productions has traveled the country from coast to coast, capturing stories of these ocean pioneers—people who are embarking on a new course of stewardship, in defense of the seas that sustain them. We can learn many lessons from these ocean pioneers; in a sense, we’re all ocean pioneers, steering uncharted waters in a sea of rapid change. In Ocean Frontiers, you’ll meet the unlikely allies who are guiding us toward a new era of ocean stewardship. SAVING WHALES AT STELLWAGEN BANK In the bustling shipping lanes of Boston Harbor, what was once a recurring collision of giant vessels and endangered whales, has become a model for conservation in a crowded sea. Marine biologists, shipping executives and an energy company have come together, taking cues from the great whales’ travelways, and finding room for both commerce and wildlife. AN OCEAN BLUEPRINT FOR FLORIDA KEYS The coral reefs of the Florida Keys are America’s most popular marine destination, home of myriad sea creatures, magnet of sport fishers, divers and sightseers. Lately they are also America’s showcase of marine conservation zoning, providing refuge, recreation, and livelihoods, through a collaborative plan developed by all concerned. IOWA FARMERS & GULF OF MEXICO The Mississippi Delta—terminus of America’s mightiest river, nursery of one of the nation’s premier fisheries, and lately an unfortunate poster child for ecological disaster—is getting help from an unlikely team of people, in an unlikely place. More than a thousand miles upstream, in the cornfields of Iowa, farmers are changing their ways to send cleaner water and new life to the nation’s beleaguered Delta. PORT ORFORD FISHERMEN PROTECT OCEAN & WAY OF LIFE In a small fishing community on the coast of Oregon, the people of Port Orford are taking control of their destiny, by conducting their own brand of conservation. They are using local science to inform their fishery management, and protecting upstream forests to save their salmon—a farsighted perspective that considers both their links to the land, and the future of their children.
