Host Minette Seate presents Sharon Brown’s documentary “The Carrie Deer.” The old Carrie Furnaces – in the milltown of Rankin –- once produced over a thousand tons of iron a day according to some estimates. In 1997, fifteen years after the furnaces had shut down, a group of mysterious young artists used the mill and its refuse to create the Carrie Deer. Once considered close to vandalism by some, the deer is now at the heart of a preservation campaign and serves as an enduring symbol for the region. Artist interviews, rare archival footage and original music help tell this unique story. more info |
