Archaeologists revealed the undisturbed remains of the area in the 1980’s.  

Spending a year and a half interviewing more than 50 people from the Narragansett, the State of Rhode Island, historians, archaeologists, anthropologists and local citizens, Marc Levitt has constructed a film of extraordinary beauty and poetry.

The film is directed and produced by Marc Levitt, with animation by Dennis Hlynsky, edited by Irene Su, Director of Photography Richard Goulis, additional photography by Thomas Payne and Mike Turecamo, drone photography by Kyla and Andrew Trench and music by both local and international musicians including Campbell Brothers, Phil Edmonds, Hang Massive, Thawn Harris, Steve Jobe, Matt McClaren, Moondog, Jesse Robbins (Red Eagle), Josh Schurman, Cathy Clasper-Torch, and What Cheer Brigade. Frances Bisogno is the sound engineer and recording took place at Jack Gauthier’s Lake West Studio. The Executive Producer is Michael Hébert.
