Monday, June 6 - Screening of Beautiful Swimmers Revisited
7 p.m., Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, 801 Chase Street, Annapolis
This documentary, by author Tom Horton, photographer Dave Harp and filmmaker Sandy Cannon-Brown, updates the work of William W. Warner's 1976 exploration of watermen, crabs and the Chesapeake Bay, in his Pulitzer Prize-winning book published in 1976. Callinectes sapidus, the scientific name of the blue crab, translates to the name of the book and the subsequent documentary film. The film examines the life of the crab and how it fits into the overall ecology of the Chesapeake Bay and its inhabitants. In addition to the film screening, several local environmental organizations will present exhibits and a panel, including two of the filmmakers and others, will discuss the points made in the film. Free admission. Donations to help cover expenses are appreciated. The screening is sponsored by Annapolis Green, the Annapolis Community Foundation, the Back Creek Conservancy, Annapolis Environmental Commission, and the Annapolis Conservancy. It is being presented during Chesapeake Bay Awareness Week (see above).
