‘Windfall’ comes to the Strand  

Credit:  knox.villagesoup.com 20 February 2012 ~~

Rockland – The Strand Theatre, 345 Main St., will host two screenings of the new documentary “Windfall” by Laura Israel about wind power as a renewable energy source. The screenings will be Saturday, March 3 at 2 p.m.; and Sunday, March 4 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $7.50, available at the box office on show days; for more information, call 594-0070 or visit rocklandstrand.com.

Wind power – it’s green and good and reduces dependency on foreign oil … or does it? “Windfall” takes a hard look at the future of industrial wind energy development and is an invitation to think critically about this alternative energy source. A must-see for anyone concerned about environmental issues and the future of renewable energy, the film looks at both sides of wind energy development when the residents of a rural upstate New York town consider going green.

The film focuses the issues faced by the residents of Meredith, N.Y., when a wind developer looked to supplement the rural farm town’s failing economy with a farm of its own – that of 40 industrial wind turbines. Attracted at first to the financial incentives that would seemingly boost their dying economy, a group of townspeople grow increasingly alarmed as they discover the impacts that the 400-foot high windmills slated for Meredith could bring to their community as well as the potential for financial scams.

With wind development in the United States growing annually at 39 percent, “Windfall” is required viewing for anyone concerned about the environment and the future of wind development. For more information about the film, visit windfallthemovie.com.
