A film showing and Q & A with the filmmakers, Stephen Blauweiss and Lynn Woods. In the late 1960s, hundreds of buildings were torn down and thousands of residents were displaced in Kingston’s downtown Rondout district in a federally funded urban renewal project. To preserve what was about to be lost, Gene Dauner took 900 photographs of downtown. Stephen Blauweiss is a filmmaker and graphic artist. Lynn Woods is a journalist and painter who moved to the Rondout nearly 20 years ago.
