The Making of “No Other Lake”

Digital Event
January 4, 2023: 7:00 pm

In 2021, UVM student Jordan Rowell kayaked the 120-mile length of Lake Champlain. Over a two-week journey, Rowell and local filmmaker Duane Peterson conducted interviews to better understand the challenges facing the lake and to explore our relationship with natural resources in the era of climate change. The pair shares excerpts from their short documentary film and discusses its creation.

About the Presenters

Duane Peterson and Jordan Rowell first began collaborating in their high school movie production class. Many wacky adventures and short films later, Duane’s made a career as an independent filmmaker and freelance editor and Jordan is an aspiring conservationist whose winding path led him home to Vermont to pursue the college degree he promised to get “someday.”
