Description:

The Mighty Humble Blueberry unearths the story of the versatile, delicious American blueberry and the consideration of the woman who dedicated her life to bringing the fruit into cultivation. In 1911, Elizabeth Coleman White and Frederick Vernon Coville were from divergent worlds, and yet, they united to carry out the mutual goal of taming the wild blueberry. Visually intriguing, the documentary is articulated with an entrancing original musical score, archival audio recordings and film footage, filmed narrative accounts, expert narrations, and original artwork and animations. The film knits together an analysis of contemporary blueberry commerce and science, with noteworthy images and documents, and compelling dialogue of those related by blood or occupation to this twosome who labored to bring the blueberry into a global marketplace.

Quotes:

O'Mallon's film will go a long way towards increasing our knowledge about blueberry farming, in an informative and entertaining treatment of this subject., Leslie Burger, , Past President, American Library Association

Nancy O'Mallon is a master at capturing both the history and the art of agriculture. Her documentary titled The Mighty Humble Blueberry has been enthusiastically received by our blueberry growers and serves us well in showing both the historical significance of our industry, while at the same time creating a greater appreciation among viewers of what it takes to bring blueberries to their table., Mark Villata, , Executive Director, U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council

A fascinating story about the blueberry. The film offers the perfect platform for discussing not only the history of fruit production, but also the importance of women in agriculture and their contributions to modern agriculture. The film can be shown in short segments for easier classroom viewing. Definitely one of the best blueberry resources available., National Resource Directory
