History Bites Film: Connecticut Goes Dry
November 14, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
In 1920, the 18th Amendment was enacted, banning the sale of alcohol across the country. However, in our “land of steady habits,” alcohol consumption was a habit that proved hard to break. In the CPTV original documentary, Prohibition: Connecticut Goes Dry, filmmakers Jennifer Boyd and Sara Conner explore Connecticut’s unique role in the prohibition movement, from the early temperance advocates of Litchfield to the lawless rum runners of Long Island Sound. The film explores the creation, rise and fall of prohibition in the state. Length: 1 hour.
