For 40 years Carla Ricci, summered in a small Rhode Island town named Carolina. When fall returned, Ricci went back to Boston where she was an associate provost at Tufts University. But she kept thinking about the small town of 75 houses that was a mile wide and centered on an abandoned mill. Such a town had lots of stories, Ricci believed. One day she wanted to hear them. That day came in 2002, when shortly after retiring from Tufts, Ricci decided to make a film about the tiny mill town that she had come to love. She interviewed scores of residents to hear about the town’s 130 years of history. Carolina, Rhode Island: The Smallest of the Small will air on the Providence PBS station this fall.
