“Destined to Fly” is a 41-minute documentary film about Cole Palen, the founder of the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome. Founded in 1958, Cole’s passion and vision to build, repair and fly antique airplanes transcends multiple generations forging connections through childhood experience, memory, and storytelling. But the community brought together by the romantic era of flight lost their hero after the death of Cole Palen in 1993. More than twenty years later, Cole’s childhood dream is sustained by the now-grown children who were inspired at an early age by Cole’s personal love for vintage aviation.

A group of weather-hardened ice yachters cling to the traditions of a centuries-old sport on the Hudson River, despite the looming threat of climate change. “Against The Wind” follows a handful of practitioners of the almost forgotten sport as they take advantage of one of the coldest winters the Hudson River Valley has seen in decades. These yachters are intent on taking full advantage of one of the deepest, longest ice sheets on the Hudson in years, knowing they might not see its like again anytime soon.

During the Vietnam War, vast quantities of a herbicidal chemical were sprayed across the battlefield to defoliate the jungles of Vietnam to improve the strategic position of United State troops against the Viet-Cong. This chemical’s code name is known as Agent Orange.

A marine, Alfred Nostrand served during the Vietnam War where, inevitably, he was exposed to Agent Orange. Thirty-five years later, in 2005, Alfred passed away from cancer of the liver.

In 2013, Alfred’s son, Christopher Nostrand, the filmmaker, opens the wound of losing his father in “Silent Exposure,” uncovering the issue of Agent Orange use in the Vietnam War. On his journey, Chris meets with professionals and his own family to unravel new findings and surprises experts with his story.
