‘Brunswick’ documentary to air on WMHT

Nate Simms’ documentary “Brunswick” was first screened for the public nearly a year ago at the Spectrum 8 Theatres in Albany.

Next week, the Troy native’s work will be given a broader audience when it airs twice on WMHT-TV Ch. 17 at 10 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12. Simms’ previous works include the book “Focus on the Land: Images of Rensselaer County.”

“Brunswick” is about the tension between development and farming in the Rensselaer County town. It tells the tale of Sanford Bonesteel, a farmer in his 90s, whose lifelong connection to his land is now threatened by small town politics and a planned residential development. Local singer-songwriter Matthew Carefully contributed the musical score.
