The film honors the legacy of the Basking Ridge Great Oak Tree

BEDMINSTER, N.J. - EntSun -- The Center for Contemporary Art ("The Center") is delighted to present Michael Reynolds' documentary, "Under the Great Oak," which celebrates the life of the great oak tree that lived in the Basking Ridge community for over 600 years. The film illustrates the impact the tree had on the community through interviews and the Great Oak Art Celebration, which brought together artists and members of the community to honor the tree and its place in history. Two screenings will take place on Saturday, August 3, at 2:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Attendees will be treated to a live performance by Gordon Thomas Ward, whose music is featured in the film, and enjoy an informative panel discussion by the team that made the documentary. Moderated by Dana Reynolds, the documentary's Executive Producer, the panel includes Sean Kirby (Editor of Under the Great Oak), Dr. Tom Ombrello (Senior Professor of Biology at Union County Community College), Michael Reynolds (Filmmaker), musician Gordon Thomas Ward, and Sue Zibelli (Trustee of The Historical Society of the Somerset Hills).
