Marlboro Productions will present their feature-length environmental documentary at the Latchis Theater in Brattleboro, VT in two screenings: Thursday, February 21 at 7:00 pm and February 24th at 4:00 pm. The screenings are part of the BURNED Barnstorming Tour, a nationwide grassroots media campaign to expose the biomass electric power industry’s destructive forest, energy, and climate practices. Following the screenings, there will be a Q&A with local filmmakers Lisa Merton, Alan Dater, and Chris Hardee.
BURNED tells the little-known story of the accelerating destruction of our forests for electric power generation, and probes the policy loopholes, huge subsidies, and blatant greenwashing of the burgeoning biomass power industry. A dedicated group of forest activists, ecologists, carbon scientists, and concerned citizens fight to establish the enormous value of our forests, protect their communities, debunk this false solution to climate change, and alter energy policy both in the US and abroad.
BURNED has been selected by a number of film festivals including the American Conservation Film Festival, where it won the Audience Choice Award, the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, the Utopia Film Festival, and the VT International Film Festival, as well as others.
