A Festival of Shorts: Two Shorts and a Doc

Sunday, June 9 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us at Hill Center for “Two Shorts and a Doc” a film screening from Producers, Jack Wennersten and Barry Harrelson. Producers of “Sustainable Waterfronts” offer a Sunset Presentation of film making on Capitol Hill “Docs on the Hill”  on June 9, 2024 from 5-7pm.   The first short will be “Men at Work” where DC wharf work men are viewed from high above.  In “John Philip Sousa” the focus becomes the man, the place, and the music.  And “On the Waterfront with Arthur Cotton Moore” is a biopic of a distinguished architect who rebuilt the Georgetown waterfront.

Jack Wennersten, co-founder of Sustainable Waterfronts, is a historian and freelance writer currently living on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.  He is a senior fellow at the National Museum of American History (Smithsonian) and a former member of the board of directors for the Anacostia Watershed Society.  A professor emeritus of environmental history at the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore,  he served as the associate editor for Maryland Historical Magazine for ten years. He was selected as a humanities scholar for Maryland and received the Maryland Writers Prize for his work The Oyster Wars of Chesapeake Bay. He is the author of ten books, including Anacostia, The Death and Rebirth of an American River.

Barry Harrelson,  a resident of Capitol Hill for over 50 years, is co-founder of Sustainable Waterfronts. A retired intelligence officer, he has volunteered with Capitol Hill community organizations over the years, including Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital and Friends of the Southeast Library.  In addition to his work on Capitol Hill, he is a volunteer with the Edwin Washington Society, a 501c3 located in Loudoun County, Virginia, which advocates for social and racial diversity with a focus on the history of school segregation.  He is co-author of Dirt Don’t Burn: A Black Community’s Struggle For Educational Equality Under Segregation,  published in 2023 by Georgetown University Press.  He is also an editor of the Bulletin of Loudoun County History.
