Local Film 'The Nightingale Chronicles' Shows in Burlington This Month


A Franklin County film production will hit a Burlington big screen on June 26.

The Nightingale Chronicles, written and directed by East Fairfield resident Harry Goldhagen, stars Bruce Jones as a womanizing glamour photographer who faces an unexpected reckoning with his past when he accepts a photo-essay assignment from a smarmy agent (played by former “Late Night Saturday” host Tim Kavanagh). His subject: a reclusive Vermont doctor (Dawn Kearon).

The 66-minute film is Goldhagen’s second feature. His 2014 debut, Bridges — which included Jones and Kavanagh in supporting roles — addressed the hot-button national topic of affordable health care in a rural Vermont setting. Goldhagen’s latest effort, filmed mostly in Franklin County, also includes footage shot in Burlington and Montréal.

The Nightingale Chronicles premieres Saturday, June 16, at 7 p.m. at the Meeting House on the Green in East Fairfield. More info here.

The Burlington screening takes place Tuesday, June 26, at 7 p.m. at Merrill’s Roxy Cinemas. More info here.
