Power Struggle – Brattleboro
November 3, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
After 7 years in the making, local area filmmaker Robbie Leppzer is holding two “Sneak Preview” benefit fundraiser screenings of his new 104-minute feature-length documentary film, POWER STRUGGLE, which chronicles the grassroots political battle to close the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant.
POWER STRUGGLE is an inspiring story of democracy in action, about whether citizens’ voices will be heard against big moneyed interests, and what people in our local area are doing to make a difference for a safe and sustainable energy future. The film is also a warning about the dangers of the high-level radioactive nuclear waste that will remain on site at Vermont Yankee indefinitely into the future.
POWER STRUGGLE is directed and produced by long-time Pioneer Valley independent documentary filmmaker Robbie Leppzer and his Wendell, MA based production company Turning Tide Productions, in association with HBO and NHK, the largest television network in Japan.
