Forget-Me-Not Vermont: Melodies of the Green Mountain State

Forget-Me-Not Vermont earned the first prize at the Freedom & Unity Filmmaker Contest.

Forget-me-not Vermont explores the history and culture of local Vermont in years past through the art of music. Created by Travis Washington, Luke Rebman, and Charles Dalgleish, each song included in this documentary touches on aspects of everyday life from over a hundred years ago. Life, love, and nostalgia all come together to paint a picture of how Vermont has changed over the years and how it still remains the same beautiful state that many adore and call home.
