TIME TO TALK: “TWO SQUARE MILES” FIFTEEN YEARS LATER
A virtual discussion with Sam J. Miller, Quintin Cross, Linda Mussmann, and Jacob Walthour. Streamed live on Saturday, December 12, 2020
Fifteen years have passed since the events of “Two Square Miles,” Barbara Ettinger’s documentary film on Hudson and its residents during a momentous period in the city’s history. Taking center stage is the fight over the St. Lawrence Cement plant and TSL co-director Linda Mussmann’s run for mayor. You can watch the documentary for free on YouTube here.
In 2020, Hudson continues to grow and change shape. Many of the issues featured in the film are still here with us today, and new challenges lie ahead. Economic and racial disparity, development of the waterfront, local vs. non-local, tourism vs. industry, affordable housing, and more.
Sam J. Miller, Quintin Cross, Linda Mussmann, and Jacob Walthour are Hudson residents, past and present, who played an active role in the community and the events of the documentary.
