CAPE SPIN! AN AMERICAN POWER STRUGGLE is the surreal, fascinating, tragicomic tale of the battle over America's largest clean energy project. when energy entrepreneur jim gordon first proposed putting 130 wind turbines in fabled nantucket sound, he had no idea that a firestorm would erupt. CAPE SPIN! tells the incredible tale of how america's first proposed offshore wind farm triggered a schism in this idyllic coastal region, pitting neighbor against neighbor and environmentalist against environmentalist. the tale frames the battle over nantucket sound as a microcosm of America's struggle towards energy sustainability. Run time is 90 minutes.
There will be a post-film conversation with filmmakers, John Kirby (director) and Libby Handros (producer), Jennifer McCan, the U.S. program director and extension leader from URI's Coastal Resources Center, and Grover Fugate, executive director of the Rhode Island Coastal Management Council.
