Abstract/ Summary

The Last Smokehouse: Lubec and the Herring Smoking Industry of Maine. Funded initially by the Maine Humanities Council, this hour-long documentary film will explore the problems of the smoked herring industry in the state of Maine. The goal is to increase public awareness not only of the plight of small local industries in the modem mega-business world but also — and perhaps more importantly — of what happens to a community when one of its long-time traditional industries dies. The filmmakers, Andrea Truppin and Michel Chalufour, are now in the scriptwriting stage.
