The City of Red Wing achieved some notoriety in October of last year when a German film crew chose Red Wing as a featured community in its high definition documentary about the Mississippi River from Lake Itasca to New Orleans.  What started out as a simple photo opportunity to highlight the American Queen turned into a neat little vignette about Red Wing which was shown on German Public TV in January of 2013.  Paul Drotos was the ad hoc spokesperson who volunteered his time for the shooting.  The intro and subtitles were provided by Channel 6 and the film clip will be shown on Channel 6.
