Tuesday, November 14th at 6:30 p.m.  “No Mutiny This Time” is the title of filmmaker Neil D. Novello’s thought-provoking talk & video presentation about the circumstances leading to the sinking of the tall ship, Bounty during Hurricane Sandy on October 29, 2012

“Bounty & Her Captain” the video portion of his presentation is “NOT a documentary but a “video essay”, like a print essay,” his personal perspective that is, “Part Testimonial”, with exclusive interviews with Captain Walbridge &“Part Shipbuilding showing work done at Boothbay Harbor Maine shipyard” and “Part Hollywood Ballyhoo” because Bounty was built exclusively for the 1962 remake of the Hollywood classic, Mutiny on the Bounty.”

Since 1985, Neil Novello’s award-winning career includes documentaries, television news, and family biographies.  His documentaries about the Portsmouth Naval Prison in Kittery, Maine were featured at the New Hampshire and Portland Maine Film Festivals and available on DVD.
