WIND OVER WATER

This short documentary chronicles the debate over the Cape Wind Project, an offshore wind farm proposed for off the southern coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. With similar facilities spreading throughout Europe, many people got excited at the prospect of the first offshore wind project ever to be proposed for American shores. However, quite a few residents of the Cape banded together to stop the project and prevent its developers from turning Nantucket Sound into what they categorized as an industrial energy complex. This battle, still ongong, between environmentalists and residents of the Cape of Massachusetts is told with a colorful cast of characters. The struggle has developed into an intriguing representation of people’s attitudes toward land, energy, politics and NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) in the U.S. 15 minutes

OUT OF BALANCE

This film documents the impact on climate change that the largest company in the world, ExxonMobil, has on governments, the media, and citizens. While the Earth’s climate is pushed further out of balance by increasing use of fossil fuels, ExxonMobil continues to assert undue influence around the world -- making record profits while ignoring climate science for which there has been overwhelming consenus for over ten years. The film also outlines what can be done about global warming. 60 minutes
