Explore the ghosts of Dicte’s past, and the origins of the Adirondack Park Agency | Passport Picks

Newly divorced crime reporter Dicte Svendsen returns to her hometown with her teenage daughter in tow. Plagued by painful memories of growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness and of the son she was forced to give up, Dicte’s new chapter is marred by the ghosts of her past. What’s more, her ex-husband remains irritatingly close to home. From Walter Presents, in Danish with English subtitles.

New York’s Adirondack Park is larger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, Glacier, Grand Canyon, and Great Smokies National Parks combined. It is one of the largest unbroken deciduous forests on Earth, with a thousand miles of streams and rivers, hundreds of lakes, and lofty peaks, and its land is managed by the Adirondack Park Agency. A WILD IDEA: THE BIRTH OF THE APA chronicles the tumultuous founding of the Adirondack Park Agency 50 years ago.
