Common Ground: Pybus to show fruit films

There’s going to be quite a party at Pybus Public Market Wednesday evening when two short documentaries highlighting the achievements and influence of fruit industry giants Tom Mathison and Grady Auvil will be shown free to the public. Filmmakers Jamie Howell and Jeff Ostenson will be on hand to answer questions after the documentaries.

Howell stopped by the office on Friday to chat about the event and what he has learned from the experience. The genesis of the Auvil documentary goes back in 2004, so it has taken nearly nine years to bring that one to completion and Howell acknowledges that doesn’t put him in the category of the world’s fastest documentary maker. It was worth spending the time to do the job right, he said.
