The Insiders: Don’t Northern Pass on this documentary at Red River
Some people have made their stance on the proposed Northern Pass project known by planting lawn signs, others by wallpapering their car in bumper stickers. Some people probably think Northern Pass is a trick play in football. And others still have decided to register their displeasure by traveling through New England and Canada to film a documentary.
That documentary, Northern Trespass, created by new filmmakers from the White Mountains Jan Marvel and Michelle Vaughn, will be shown tonight
at 7 at Red River Theatres.
The title indicates that Marvel and Vaughn (which would
make a sweet name for the next fluffy legal dramedy from
TNT starring that guy who played Zach Morris) are not fans, but just how opposed are they? Since press material for the documentary says it “pulls the veil off and exposes the project for what it really is, an unnecessary and destructive profit-driven proposal that threatens the very essence of New Hampshire and its people,” we’re going to go with pretty opposed.
Best bonus ever: Concord native Matt Bonner, taking a summer vacation from raining 3s on the rest of the NBA, will be hosting the screening. Frankly, we’re shocked it took us this long to make note of that.

Before heading out to view anything, you should eat your vegetables. This public service announcement has been brought to you by your mother. But the vegetables can be brought to you by local vendors at the Concord Farmers Market, which continues its weekly Wednesday appearances throughout the summer at the Steeplegate Mall from 3 to 7 p.m. And there’s plenty more there than vegetables – visit
concordfarmersmarket.com to get a better idea.
