BRATTLEBORO- Marlboro Productions presents its environmental documentary “Burned,” at the Latchis Theatre, 50 Main Street, on Sunday, February 24, at 4 pm, followed by a question and answer session with the filmmakers.
“Burned” tells the little-known story of the accelerating destruction of forests for electric power generation, and probes the policy loopholes, huge subsidies, and blatant greenwashing of the burgeoning biomass power industry. A dedicated group of forest activists, ecologists, carbon scientists, and concerned citizens fight to establish the enormous value of forests, protect their communities, debunk this false solution to climate change, and alter energy policy both in the United States and abroad.
The screenings are part of the “Burned” barnstorming tour, a nationwide grassroots media campaign to expose the biomass electric power industry’s destructive forest, energy, and climate practices.
“Burned” has been selected by a number of film festivals including the American Conservation Film Festival, where it won the Audience Choice Award, the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, the Utopia Film Festival, and the Vermont International Film Festival.
