| Barrie Documentary To Be Screened In Phelps Stokes
Nashville film maker and conservationist Jeff Barrie will appear at Berea College October 18 for a screening of his documentary "Kilowatt Ours," the story of his 18 month journey across the Southeastern United States to document energy related problems and present viable solutions to them.
The screening, scheduled for 7 p.m. in Phelps Stokes Chapel, is free and open to the public.
In making the film, Barrie was motivated by a larger mission: to initiate an ambitious movement devoted to reducing energy consumption and promoting renewable resources in an effort to improve the quality of life in the South East.
The film's website, linked below, contains more information about the project and also includes information and links related to alternative energy and methods to help decrease consumption.
An earlier award-winning documentary by Barrie, "Arctic Quest: the Search for Truth" released in 2000, brought attention to issues related to drilling for oil in the Alaska national wilderness.
The event is sponsored by Berea College's Helping Earth and Learning (HEAL), Center for Excellence in Learning through Service (CELTS) and Sustainability and Environmental Studies (SENS) program. For more information, contact Dr. James Dontje, (859) 985-3948.
