This month's Film Night features “Stone Wallah” by Gerry Pallor.

In 2011 Hurricane Irene devastated the Hudson Valley. In its aftermath a section of Opus 40, a world-renowned monumental earthwork, collapsed. Opus 40 was built by one man, Harvey Fite, over 37 years using traditional tools and materials. It is a statement about artistic vision, persistence and the human spirit.

After the damage was assessed, a long process of planning and fundraising began. Supporters from close to home and around the world rose to the occasion. It culminated in June 2016, when an international team of masons headed by a Welch master mason convened to rebuild the wall.

Stone Wallah began as a series of videos for the fundraising campaign and grew to become a documentary covering the extraordinary effort devoted to repairing this extraordinary work of art.

Wallah comes from the Hindi suffix "vala," meaning someone in charge. It also refers to the masons who call themselves as Stone Wallers.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with host Mark Gamma.
