Representatives of the Energy Independent Vermont Campaign will be on hand tonight for an exclusive screening of the film The Great Invisible at the Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center in Burlington.
In this documentary, filmmaker Margaret Brown travels to small towns and major cities across Alabama, Louisiana and Texas exploring the fallout of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Tickets are free and the public is invited to attend but attendees need to register ahead of time to reserve a seat.
This screening is being presented by Ceres and their members Seventh Generation, Ben & Jerry’s (both EIV endorsers), and Burton Snowboards.
The film will begin at 5:30pm, followed by a panel discussion on how we can reduce our dependence on oil – featuring Carol Lee Rawn, director of transportation at Ceres, Brian Shupe, executive director of (EIV coalition member) Vermont Natural Resources Council and Paul Burns, executive director of (EIV coalition member) VPIRG.
Organizers from EIV will also be on hand to talk to attendees about the campaign and recruit new activists.
