Promising Hartford Documentary

We found this promising preview for an upcoming documentary on Hartford, "The Sweetest Land."  The preview says it is slated to debut at the Wadsworth in the fall.  Early on and throughout the preview you can see and hear Reverend Brown, a man with multiple Sad City appearances.  

The YouTube page where we found this preview describes the documentary;

THE SWEETEST LAND - a nonpartisan production initiative, focusing on extraordinary stories of engagement, the human toll of policy and the potential of effective opportunity.

This unofficial trailer was created early into filming and does NOT represent the story structure. It is released at this early stage to introduce the participants/initiative.

We look forward to seeing more of this film. "Like it" on Facebook here.


  1. A sad and serious issue that Hartford, and every city needs to address

  2. Definitely going to try to see this doc. Anyone know when the doc is going to be released and where the Wadsworth is located?

  3. The Wadsworth is on Main St. in downtown, you can't miss it.

    Only info I've seen on release date is the fall.
