Here’s a fascinating and galvanizing film about an issue that hits literally close to home for us here in Maine, where wind power controversy has begun to make headlines. In Windfall, when a multi–national corporation offers to revitalize a rural New York farm town’s failing economy with a “green” new industry, residents believe they have found the solution to their economic problems. But the townspeople grow increasingly alarmed as they discover that the reality of the enormous wind towers the company seeks to erect will devastate their very way of life. Hauntingly filmed and truly unforgettable. Windfall delves viscerally into a complex, multi-sided issue.
From the film's website:
We are currently releasing the film for community screenings by special request and hope to inspire broader interest for mainstream distribution and broadcast. We are also close to announcing a theatrical release, which will open up many opportunities for the film as well as the issue.
We are not selling the DVD or streaming the film until after the theatrical release. If you'd like to be informed of the DVD or VOD release, please sign up HERE.
