The Champlain Valley Film Society presents Jack London's Martin Eden 

Special guest speaker Jay Craven, film writer and director.

This timeless story explores the themes of impossible love, social class, money, gender, artistry, the loss of innocence, and the pursuit of the American Dream. Based on Jack London's autobiographical novel, "Martin Eden" it tells the story of a poor and unschooled sailor (Martin Eden), who unexpectedly meets a magnetic young woman of means and education. Their unconventional attraction upends both lives and propels timely themes of impossible love and the quest for a comfortable place in an inconstant world. Produced in association with students from a dozen colleges, including Wellesley, Skidmore, and Middlebury.

JAY CRAVEN is the director of four films based on the novels by Howard Frank Moser, including Northern Borders and Where the Rivers Flow North.
