When Old Town, Maine native, Aron Gaudet finished his first feature film, The Way We Get By, his work was only half done. Gaudet (and filmmaking partner Gita Pullapilly) have crafted a gem of a film that's been picking up awards at festivals around the country (SXSW, Full Frame, Cleveland . . .) but when your subjects are senior citizens and US troops returning from Iraq, you face a certain marketing challenge. The Way We Get By is a true feel-good film that details the troop greeters at the Bangor International Airport. If it doesn't immediately catch your attention, give the trailer a watch and we think you'll understand why it's been winning the accolades:
The Way We Get By will be on PBS in the Fall but as part of a series of screenings across the state, we'll be showing the film at SPACE for three screenings: Friday, June 19th at 7:30, Saturday, June 20th at 3:00pm and Sunday, June 21st at 7:30pm.
