Redefining Prosperity: Gold Rushes of... (NR) Genre: Documentary Runtime: 00:57

Winner of the People's Choice Award at the recent Wild & Scenic Film Festival, where its two World Premiere showings at the Nevada Theatre sold out. Born in the California Gold Rush, Nevada City was once the scene of many destructive environmental practices. By the 1960s, the town was a backwater, its extractive industries dying. Then it was discovered by the :back to the land movement." It was a second gold rush but with a different idea of gold, based on nature, community and a sense of place. Interviews with over 35 local folks give the viewer a flavor of the variety of skills and imagination that combine to give Nevada City its unique character. Filmmaker John de Graaf will attend this showing for a Q&A after the movie.
