The epic story of Leon Gast’s more than two-decade quest to get his film, When We Were Kings, the Oscar winning documentary of Muhammad Ali and George Foreman’s Heavyweight Championship bout in Zaire in 1974, made, will surely be recounted along with a showing of the film, as the Woodstock Film Festival presents a Special Tribute to Gast at 4:45 p.m. Friday October 1 at the Bearsville Theater.

With the coming of autumn, among the treats traditionally in store are the openings of not one, but three new exhibitions at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art on the campus of SUNY New Paltz. This year, with bans on public gatherings (hopefully) behind us, art-lovers can see the new shows beginning on Saturday, September 11, with a joint opening reception scheduled for Sunday, September 12 from 12 to 4 p.m.
