Discovering Lowell Thomas
Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) is thrilled to kick off their summer season by welcoming independent filmmaker Rick Moulton to talk about his documentary on journalist Lowell Thomas. This talk will be a narrative account of the years spent uncovering who Lowell Thomas was. The tale begins in 1980 and carries forward forty years to the present. The presentation will reveal the motivators, the moments that kept the quest going and the actual making of the documentary, “Voice of America: Lowell Thomas and the Rise of Broadcast News”, which premiered nationally on PBS in the fall of 2019. Supported by photos and video clips, this is a story that covers the 20th century, first following the life of Thomas and then the years it took to present it. Registration for the talk is $15 in advance. For more information or to register, please call 802-867-0111 or visit our website at greenmtnacademy.org.
