Product Description

Little Ditch: The Black River Canal; is a 90 minute film that tells of the trials and elation of the engineering marvel that let boats sail over a mountain and move the raw materials that helped build the Empire State. It was, as one local describes it, the life of the valley.

Directors R. David White and Matthew White spent three years making the film between research, scripting, shooting and editing. Using historic images coupled with reinactors from The Erie Canal Village in Rome and video of the area today, the film recreates the eras of the late 19th and early 20th century on the canal. The story weaves together historical accounts and compelling personal views to gain new insight and feeling toward the life and times of the canalers.

In a ditch-digging frenzy that followed the opening of the Erie Canal, a number of lateral or tributary canals were dug in an effort to spread the wealth throughout New York State. One of those was the Black River Canal; running from Rome, where it met the Erie, uphill to Boonville and on to Carthage, between the Adirondacks and Tug Hill.

For the people of Lewis, northern Oneida and Jefferson Counties The Black River Canal was the main street through the area for 70 years and spurred the development of the western Adirondack region. Sand from Boonville went into the bricks and glass that built Albany and Brooklyn. The salt fires in Syracuse were fed by Lewis County hemlock and Black River Valley cobblestone lined the streets of Buffalo and Rochester. The wharfs of New York City were made from Forestport trees and even boatloads of ice cut from area ponds and lakes found their way to the city.

It was a slower, simpler time but it was also brutal and demanding. When roads in northern New York were just rutted wagon trails the canal was a 19th century superhighway that opened up business and trade for the remote area. Stores, hotels and towns sprang up around the comings and goings of the canal barges. Lock tenders worked the gates, horses trudged along the tow-paths and no matter the bustle, one could still hear the quiet way 60 tons of boat would glide through the water at four miles an hour.

The film is narrated by author Michael Doyle whose book Forestport Breaks gives us a look into a series of incidents that exposed the corruption that seemed to run rampant in upgrading and maintaining the Erie Canal system. He is currently a reporter with the Washington D.C. Bureau of the McClatchy Newspaper Group. He holds a Masters in Law from Yale and has considerable media experience, including C-SPAN and other radio and television stations nationally.

The film features interviews with Ed Fynmore, a driving force behind the Boonville Black River Canal Museum; Town of Western historian Russell Marriott and Ken Clark, who grew up on the canal when it was still in use.

Rich Sliter, formerly of Mike White and the Sliter Brothers , a Henderson, New York native, wrote and performed the original soundtrack for the film. Sliter moves the story along with his skillful voice and inventive playing of guitar, banjo, dobro and percussion. His music is seamlessly combined with his brother Ron s fiddle playing.

Little Ditch is released by local filmmakers RD White and Matthew White of 4th Coast Productions. It is their fourth documentary. Their last film, Coming Home Alive , (Winner: Best Human Interest Documentary, Los Angeles, California), documents the war experiences of Adams, New York resident Rick White. This month, 4th Coast Productions second endeavor, Vernissage , a film by Carmen D Avino, will be playing as part of an art exhibit titled, B-Bomb: The Transatlantic War of Images and all that Jazz in the 1950s .
