Windfall is an award-winning film that documents the experience of a small rural town in upstate New York, as residents weigh the impacts of industrial scale wind on their lives and the environment.
The situation shown in Meredith, NY, is so similar to our own in Grafton and Windham. In the film, residents both for and against the turbines relay their stories, illustrating the terrible divide in their community. Since we are all deeply saddened by the divisiveness in our own two communities, watching the struggles of these residents could help us to be extra thoughtful in our conversations and actions with our own neighbors. We all care very deeply about Grafton and Windham.
Please join us and bring your families, friends, and neighbors to this very personal, important event.
From New York Times review: “Laura Israel’s urgent, informative and artfully assembled documentary … depicts the perils of a booming industry and the bitter rancor it sowed among a citizenry.”
