Movie about Troop Greeters Wins Honorable Mention 

A movie about the work of troop greeters at Bangor International Airport has won an honorable mention in the documentary film category at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas. The 80-minute film, “The Way We Get By,” focuses on the lives of three of the troop greeters who have welcomed hundreds of thousands of troops as they passed through the airport on their way to and from overseas assignments. The film was directed by Old Town native Aron Gaudet. One of the greeters featured in the film is Gaudet’s mother. The festival’s awards ceremony was held Tuesday night.
