"High Water Mark" Local Documentary Premiere 3/26
“It was a labor of love,” says Simmon. “I tell my filmmaking students ‘don’t start down the path of making a documentary unless you’re willing to eat, live, and breathe the film’s subject matter for years.’ I’m a huge Pants fan and I just made the film that I would want to see as a fan.”
The feature documentary film, High Water Mark: The Rise & Fall of The Pants, by Vermont filmmaker, Bill Simmon, will premiere at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington on Saturday March 26. The film premiere will be followed by a musical tribute to legendary Burlington Rock band, The Pants, featuring an all-star line up of local music luminaries taking the stage.Read More »
