This documentary has been skillfully directed and produced by Lance Gunberg, (who also directed the film Hetty Green’s “Beyond the Myth”). The locally produced documentary, “A Brief History of the French Sharpshooters Hall and Orpheum Theatre” is a true home grown project. The idea first came to me when I participated in the second rope light tour. After my experience inside that beautiful old building, I felt the need to tell its story and help to raise awareness of its potential future.

Utilizing the traditional method of interviews, combined with narration, motion photography and music, I was able to tell the story utilizing the cable public access studio, Channel 95, in New Bedford’s South End.
