PLYMOUTH — A New Hampshire-made film that lays out the case against the Northern Pass Project will be shown on the PSU campus on April 24. The showing is being sponsored by Common Ground, Plymouth State University's environmental and social justice student organization, with the assistance of the PSU Office of Environmental Sustainability and the PSU Social Science Department.
The film is entitled Northern Trespass and it is the product of New Hampshire filmmakers Jan Marvel and Michelle Vaughn. The screening is set for Thursday, April 24, at 7 p.m. in the Boyd Science Center, Room 144 on the PSU campus. Following the showing, the filmmakers will be present for a Q & A session, along with Jack Savage from the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests. The Forest Society has taken a position in opposition to the Northern Pass Project, at least as currently designed.
A quote from the film's Website (http://www.northerntrespass.com) reveals the focus of the film: "What's all the fuss about the Northern Pass Transmission project? Why are so many people opposed to it? This documentary pulls the veil off and exposes the project for what it really is, an unnecessary and destructive profit-driven proposal that threatens the very essence of New Hampshire and its people."
The showing is free and open to the public.
