Award-Winning Documentary Follows Grassroots Campaign to Stop WalMart
The residents of Damariscotta, Maine rallied together to keep a Super WalMart from locating in their small town in the award winning documentary OurTown. Red Door Media followed two young mothers’ grassroots campaign to educate the community and recruit volunteers to take on the largest retail corporation in the world. What these two determined community activists demonstrate is that local citizens have the right — and the ability — to shape the future of their communities. Thanks to a generous grant from the Horizon Foundation, the filmmakers are currently visiting communities throughout New England to present this citizen-inspired documentary.
