WXXI, in co-production with the Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance, premiered it’s latest documentary celebrating the Finger Lakes region. This past Monday, viewers were treated to an impressive feat of stunning imagery and information covering many cultural and historical aspects of this amazing area.
Finger Lakes Museum supporters were delighted to see that Executive Director, Natalie Payne, sets the tone for the documentary. Her introduction shares facts about the world’s percentages of freshwater, explaining how these percentages transfer to our eleven Finger Lakes.
The hour-long documentary highlights various individuals, historical landmarks and businesses in the Finger Lakes that have been integral to the story of this region. Drone footage and in-person interviews provide a delightful mix of visual and auditory information, leaving viewers with a first-person perspective of several local places of interest that dot the Finger Lakes map.
This stunning documentary is dedicated to the memory of John Adamski, the FLM founder who passed away earlier this year. A mentor, innovator, and friend, he worked to promote this area and to bring the Museum idea to life, giving the region the recognition it deserves.
