Finding Freeman Patterson (FAP)

Directed by Scott Munn

Produced by Filmmaker Assistance Program (FAP)

The short documentary is about renowned New Brunswick photographer, writer and environmentalist Freeman Patterson. To be shot on Patterson’s property Shamper’s Bluff, located at the crest of a hill overlooking the Wolostoq, the land comprises fields of lush grasses and wildflowers. Patterson has begun the process of donating much of this land to the New Brunswick Nature Trust, to be featured as a motif in the film epitomizing the artist’s commitment to environmental justice and sustainability. This film is not intended to be a retrospective, nor is it intended as an update to previously filmed interviews featuring Patterson, rather, it is intended to be a work of art in itself—a snapshot of an artist, his practice, and his life.
