Video short animation "Mad River Rising" directed by Daniel Houghton






Watch "Mad River Rising" (13 minute) story about making peace with your life, as you age. We make peace with our life everyday, and it is the little and big acts of everyday madness that can haunt us until we let go - and live. An aging farmer escapes his dreary retirement home and finds himself back at his boyhood farm. Looking out from the loft of his decrepit barn, he is inundated with memories of a day in 1927 when the Great Flood of Vermont reshaped his world forever. YouTube link
