Wind power… it’s sustainable … it burns no fossil fuels…it produces no air pollution. What’s more, it cuts down dependency on foreign oil. That’s what the people of Meredith, in upstate New York first thought
when a wind developer looked to supplement the rural farm town’s economy with a farm of their own -- that of 40 industrial wind turbines.
Windfall, a beautifully photographed, feature length, award winning documentary directed and produced by Laura Israel. It documents how this proposal divides Meredith’s residents as they fight over the future of their community.
Attracted at first to the financial incentives that would seemingly boost their economy, a group of townspeople grow increasingly alarmed as they discover the impacts that the 400-foot high windmills
slated for Meredith could bring to their community as well as the potential for financial scams. WINDFALL is an eye-opener that should
be required viewing for anyone concerned about the environment and the future of renewable energy.
