fb.indiewire.com – David Redmon and Ashley Sabin made their documentary "Downeast" as the first of a four part series. The film follows a year-and-a-half in a small lobstering village that faces tough times because of the economic crisis. They cite Ilisa Barbash's sheep-herding documentary "Sweetgrass" as an influence on their film. "'Sweetgrass' inspired us to expand our understanding of storytelling and our visual and experiential sensibilities," said the directors.
