FREE movie at Williamsville Hall this Saturday August 9

Moore Free Library and Williamsville Hall present the final installment of six FREE movies at Williamsville Hall this SATURDAY, August 9 at 7PM.
Part Six “People’s Power” of The Vermont Movie tackles contemporary tensions over energy, independence, the environment and the state’s future. Chronicling the struggle to close the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant, it reveals the power of protest, the influence of lobbyists and the importance of town meeting debate and a citizen legislature. It follows the battle over windmills in Lowell—a struggle over scale, aesthetics and environmental impacts—and explores thorny questions about economics, sovereignty and climate change. Finally, the devastating impacts of Hurricane Irene reveal the power not only of nature, but of people and community.
