Here’s the trailer for Sumner McKane’s fascinating live multimedia exhibit about Maine lumbermen and river drivers in the 19th century. Sumner is an accomplished musician and has contributed scores for a number of documentaries, but here he’s created both. Check out his portrait of the sparsely-studied culture of the men who lived and worked in logging camps. (And don’t miss the part around 3:10 where a guy surfs down the river standing on a log).
