Event Information:

A film for anyone who cares about forests. BURNED: Are Trees the New Coal? is a feature-length documentary, which takes an unwavering look at the latest energy industry solution to climate change. The film tells the story of how woody biomass has become the fossil-fuel industry’s renewable, green savior, and of the people and parties who are both fighting against and promoting its adoption and use. Through interviews with activists, experts, and citizens, along with verité-style footage shot across the U.S. and in the E.U. and U.K., the film interweaves the science of climate change, the escalating energy-policy disputes, the dynamics of forest ecology, the biomass industry practices, the conflict between jobs and trees, and the actions of activists and citizens who are working to protect their own health, their communities, the forest, and the planet’s climate. Woven together, the various stories present an intimate and visceral account of what is at this moment in time a critical, yet mostly unknown, national and international controversy. Watch the official trailer here: https://vimeo.com/207017382 Movie screenings begin promptly at 7 PM, and doors will close shortly thereafter. Presented as part of the monthly Environmental Film Series, through the ongoing partnership between the Havre de Grace Green Team and Havre de Grace Maritime Museum.
