"Gloucester Speaks" is a one hour documentary portrait of the people of Gloucester at the crossroads between the historic past, the present and the unknown future of this iconic and beloved city. The story will be told through the captivating, sometimes excited, sometimes troubled words of our citizens. The building and opening of the Beauport Hotel will act as a kind of Motif representing the inevitability of change in this, America's first fishing community. To date, conversations have been videotaped the Mayor Theken, Peter Anastas, Jimmie Tarantino, fishermen, stone cutters, graffiti artists, a homeless man and an actor. 17 more conversations are planned spanning a broad and intriguing cast of Gloucester residents.
