CROZET

A SMALL TOWN IN AMERICA

SYNOPSIS

 

"Crozet" is a documentary film project portraying the history (past-present and future) of Crozet, VA, a paradisiacal American small town nested in the foothills on the Blue Ridge Mountains.

 

The film follows Crozet’s rise from a rural area to an urban center for Western Albemarle, the subsequent decline in the 1980s, and the current revitalization of the town. Narrated by local historian Phil James and using interviews with current and former residents, Montes-Bradley shows the changing face of the small American town.
