Aaron Cadieux and Manny Famolare, co-directors of *The Bridgewater Triangle*, will screen their film at the Norfolk Public Library on Wednesday, Oct. 22 nd at 7:00 p.m. The 90-minute documentary will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the co-directors, and is free and open to the public.
The Bridgewater Triangle documentary was a movie decades in the making. Each of the film's co-directors grew up near one of the triangle's most infamous locations. As a resident of East Bridgewater, Famolare had heard bizarre stories of cryptic animal sightings in the nearby Hockomock Swamp. Meanwhile, as a resident of North Dartmouth, Cadieux was well aware of the neighboring Freetown-Fall River State Forest's sinister reputation. Famolare and Cadieux each came to know the concept of the Bridgewater Triangle through reading publications from leading researchers.
The Bridgewater Triangle sits within the Southeastern portion of Massachusetts, and includes a number of locations known for unexplained occurrences, the most prominent of which include the legendary Hockomock Swamp and the infamous Freetown/Fall River State Forest. The Triangle's traditional borders are revealed by connecting the dots between the town of Abington to the north, the town of Freetown to the southeast, and the town of Rehoboth to the southwest. The region hosts an unusually high volume of reports involving strange occurrences, unexplained mysteries and sinister activities. From ghostly hauntings and cryptic animal sightings, to UFO encounters and evidence of satanic ritual sacrifice, the Bridgewater Triangle serves as one of the world's most diverse hotspots for paranormal activity.
In 2010, after years of researching many odd occurrences in the Bridgewater Triangle, Famolare, a passionate photographer and videographer, decided to begin the process of making his own documentary on the subject. Through the internet, Famolare and Cadieux stumbled across each other's plans, and eventually agreed to join forces and produce a single comprehensive piece. By 2011, production on *The Bridgewater Triangle *was well underway. After almost three years of filming, scriptwriting and researching, the documentary debuted on October 20, 2013 to a sell-out crowd of more than 750 people at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. It presents the reports of strange occurrences and unexplained mysteries from the region in a way which allows viewers to make their own determinations regarding the legitimacy of the Bridgewater Triangle's existence.
The film features a number of local residents providing first-hand, eyewitness accounts of unexplained occurrences in the region. In addition, paranormal researchers, folklorists and authors provide expert analysis regarding the many mysteries of the Triangle. Loren Coleman, the author and world-renowned cryptozoologist dubbed the 200-square-mile region in southeastern Massachusetts, "The Bridgewater Triangle" in his 1983 work, Mysterious America.
Since its debut a year ago, *The Bridgewater Triangle* has been screened at Bridgewater State University as well as several area libraries, and has an upcoming screening at Cinema Salem. Famolare and Cadieux have been interviewed on WCVB's Chronicle as well as WJAR in Providence. *The Bridgewater Triangle* will air on the cable channel, Destination America in November.

Narrated by the Cat in the Hat (Izzy Johnson, Canton, MA), the story tells the tale of Horton (Joe Spirito, North Smithfield, RI), an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo (Jackson Flaherty, Mansfield, MA), a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge - not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird (Olivia Fonseca, Taunton, MA). Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz (Camryn MacIver, North Attleboro, MA) never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship,loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
The talented cast of 45 is guided by Director and Choreographer Michael Hammond (Holbrook, MA), Music Director Paula Bishop (Foxboro, MA) and Assistant Choreographer Cailin Dyke (Mansfield, MA).

Along the same subject, a week ago Sunday I took my two daughters to the new playground and during the trip I had three separate vehicles blow by me while in the cross-walk with a double stroller! One was a kid in a jeep (at the playground heading in to town), the second was at the same location and was an elderly woman. She didn't even see me which is scary. At least the kid in the Jeep made eye-contact. The last was in front of the gas station; I was literally half-way across when an older guy and his wife went flying out of the rotary Down Main Street on a Harley. Frankly I am perplexed that the police aren't permanently situated somewhere near the new playground. I am afraid it is only a matter of time before something happens. I think the town should have put a blinking yellow light at that intersection when they built the playground.
