2009 marks the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s historic trip up the Hudson River. To celebrate and promote this Quadricentennial year, Aronson Films and WNET.ORG produced short Hudson River Valley-themed films in an effort to build awareness and enthusiasm for the anniversary celebrations taking place this year. Film subjects range from a portrait of a landscape painter to the birth of environmentalism; from the story of a Coast Guard icebreaker maintaining the Hudson channel to the perspective of a present-day lighthouse keeper.
