Two years in the making, “Il Villaggio di Millbrook” (“The Village of Millbrook”) is a beautifully filmed, sensitive documentary about immigration and assimilation in small-town America. It was the vision of Barbara Hanson Pierce, a longtime Dutchess County resident, who wanted to explore Millbrook’s Italian roots.

The film grew out of Millbrook’s Museum in the Streets© project, a permanent, bi-lingual, historical walking tour of the village, which Pierce, as co-chair, shepherded to its opening in 2014.  As a follow-up, she wanted to film the stories of some of Millbrook’s oldest families of Italian descent, whose ancestors came in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to work on the great estates.
