THE ELECTRICITY FAIRY
This month we join up with the Three Rivers Film Festival by hosting the visiting filmmaker Tom Hansell, who is presenting his documentary about the Appalachian coal industry "The Electricity Fairy." Tom is coming from Kentucky, where he is affiliated with the legendary film collective Appalshop.
The Electricity Fairy examines America's national addiction to fossil fuels through the lens of electricity. The documentary follows the controversy surrounding a coal-fired power plant in southwest Virginia’s mountains, connecting the local controversy to the national energy policy debate.

Melwood Screening Room
We will not meet as usual outside the little theater. Instead, we'll attend the public screening in the big theater, and go out with Tom afterwards.
