August, 1976. Three boys driving an isolated stretch of road encounter a Bigfoot with glowing, red eyes. They report it to local police who go on to have a sighting of their own. This is the incredible, true story of the Abair Incident. Beast of Whitehall also explores the impact Bigfoot has had on the regional culture of the Adirondacks, and upstate New York.
"Beast of Whitehall," a documentary about Bigfoot in the Adirondacks of New York, is itself an anomaly. It departs from a sensationalized approach in favor of letting eyewitnesses speak about their experiences with little editorializing. In true Fortean fashion, it raises more questions than it answers, forcing the viewer to wrestle with the problem of credible people seeing incredible things.
It could be said that the Adirondack region steals the show. Shot after shot reveals a beautiful and rugged landscape. Chances are that after being immersed in these images for forty-plus minutes, the viewer will want to hop in the car for a visit to Whitehall, located no more than four hours from New York City.
Brandon Dalo's score establishes a subtle 'mountain' feel to the film that builds on his affecting work in Small Town Monsters' previous production, "Minerva Monster." "Beast of Whitehall" is proof that beauty and mystery often stand side by side.
