Willow Pond Films is named in memory of the Willow Pond Kitchen, a beloved historic restaurant in Concord, Massachusetts, that was torn down by the National Park Service to make room for a Revolutionary War historical marker.  We make films about how history remains alive and is necessary for understanding and changing the world today.   The history we tell in our films – like the road house with whom we share our name – is part of our world and nourishes us.
