Vineyard Voices American Stories  |  Marthas Vineyard  |  2003 

A documentary film aimed at preserving and enhancing local oral histories collected through the Marthas Vineyard Historical Society.

These stories helped residents and visitors understand the island's past as it makes decisions for the future. This project was funded by five LCCs: Aquinnah, Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, Tisbury and West Tisbury.

A portrait of the Brickman family, one of the first Jewish families on the Island.
