Seeking the Current-Film Showing & Discussion

Time: 7:00 pm-9:00 pm
Place: Keene State College, Putnam Theater, Keene, NH
Price: Free
Ages: Older

Seeking the Current film showing & discussion. One year before the start of an 8-billion dollar hydroelectric project on the pristine Romaine River in eastern Canada, Canadian filmmakers Nicolas Boisclair and Alexis de Gheldere packed a campstove, two solar panels, and a 2,500-page environmental assessment impact study of the proposed dams into their canoe, and paddled the River from source to sea. This award-winning, feature-length documentary film recounts their journey, exploring important questions about the future of green energy along the way. The film has special relevance to New Hampshire as the state considers the Northern Pass transmission project, the proposed 180 mile transmission line through New Hampshire that would bring an additional 1,200 megawatts of Hydro-Qu├ębec hydropower to the New England electric grid. If you pay an electricity bill, you have to see this film! Thursday, April 5 at 7 pm at the Putnam Theater at Keene State College. Free & open to the public. A brief discussion of the film and how it relates to Northern Pass will follow. Co-sponsored by the Conservation Law Foundation, the Keene State College Film Society, and the Harris Center for Conservation Education.
