13th Green Mountain Film Festival: <i>Four Friends</i> Montpelier Vermont


In interviews with artisanal bread bakers Jules and Helen Rabin, and with Peter and Elka Schumann of the world famous Bread and Puppet Theater, director Susan Bettmann's short film touches on topics related to Vermont's history of independent thinking. From their intellectual and aesthetic perspective these artists/political activists discuss the values of progressive education, grassroots politics, and the influence of Vermont's landscape on their artistry.

Four Friends explores the longstanding friendship between these two couples, beginning in their Greenwich Village peace activist days in the 1960s. This commitment to peace activism is evident in the Rabins' continuing weekly anti-war vigils in front of the Montpelier Post Office, just as the Bread and Puppet Theater demonstrates outspoken leftist political positions in their giant puppet shows and pageants.
