GREENE – Filmmaker, Charles Hartman will present his film, “Austria,” at the Sawyer Memorial, 371 Sawyer Road. His live narration will be shown at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2, and at 2 and 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3. Admission is free and the doors will open one hour before showtime.

Hartman has been taking photos almost as long as he has had the desire to travel the world.

He began his film career while still in high school, documenting tours of the school band on 8mm film. He also made a number of school movies. Before he turned professional, he received a master’s degree in history at the University of Indiana and entered teaching.

Hartman turned out a number of school films, continuing to travel and establishing himself as a freelance writer and photographer with many national bylines to his credit.

A resident of his adopted Colorado, he is an avid sailor, hiker, climber and cyclist, recently completing a 4,200-mile bicycle tour of America with his son.

The film will take the audience to Vienna and a cruise on the Blue Danube. They will travel to Salzburg and the lake district as well as Innsbruck and into the high country of Tyrolia. Throughout the film, they will meet the people of Austria.
