Mini-Masters: Frosty the Snowman

An Evolving Legacy: Delaware’s Coastal Act

Forty years ago, Governor Russell W. Peterson championed Delaware’s landmark Coastal Zone Act to preserve the Delaware shoreline. Before Peterson’s death last February at the age of 94, Oates interviewed the former governor, who recounted the dramatic struggle to craft and pass this visionary legislation. After the screening, director Michael Oates will lead a Q&A session about the production of the film. Milton Fire Hall, January 20th, 7 P.M.
