Northern Borders

Redfern Arts Center - Putnam Theater

Vermont Director Jay Craven's latest film tells the story of ten year-old Austen Kittredge, who is sent by his father to live on his grandparents' Vermont farm. There he finds wild adventures and uncovers long-festering family secrets.

It's 1956 and Austen experiences the farm as a place full of eccentric people, especially his stubborn grandparents (Bruce Dern and Genvieve Bujold) whose thorny marriage is known as the Forty Years War.

Initially feeling stuck in this fractured household, young Austen plans a quick exit but ends up stranded with no choice but to navigate and endure.

A humorous and sometimes startling coming-of-age-story, Northern Borders evokes Vermont's wildness, its sublime beauty, a haunted past, and an aura of enchantment. ©
