New Hampshire filmmaker Dan Habib will be on campus to discuss his film, Intelligent Lives.

The perception of intelligence is a powerful force in the systematic segregation, maltreatment, and unfulfilled potential of hundreds of millions of individuals with disabilities in the US and worldwide. The documentary film project Intelligent Lives explores how the segregation of people with intellectual disabilities became the norm, why this segregation is slowly being dismantled, and how some people with intellectual disabilities are blazing a bold new path.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth and young adults in New Hampshire. We can all learn to prevent suicide by understanding the warning signs and what to do if someone is at risk. This presentation will include a national video created by college students about suicide prevention and a presentation by a PSU alumna who lost her brother to suicide. The program will provide participants with information on how to recognize someone at risk, where and how to get help, and what resources exist for those who have been affected by suicide. Many of these resources exist right on the PSU campus. Find more information here.

Documentary Film Exploring the Complexity of the Northern Pass Project is coming to The Museum of the White Mountains on Earth Day, April 22nd. The Power of Place Screening will be at Boyd Hall Room 144 on the Plymouth State University campus in Plymouth, New Hampshire at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22nd. It was created through a kickstarter campaign by New Hampshire conservation photographer and filmmaker Jerry Monkman Hosted by The Museum of the White Mountains.

The screening is open to the public and there is no admission charge.

The film will be followed by a Q & A with the filmmaker.

Electricity giant Hydro-Quebec needs to sell more of its electricity to New England and Eversource Energy wants to pitch in by distributing this power to customers in southern New England. To do that the companies have joined forces to build Northern Pass, a 187-mile transmission line that will bisect the state of New Hampshire with high-voltage cable strung between 1500 steel towers rising as tall as 135 feet. Residents of the “Live Free or Die” state have a problem with that. New Hampshire is a place where people’s connections to the land run deep. Its mountains and forest, lakes and rivers, are part working landscape and part outdoor playground, and those opposed to Northern Pass see it as a desecration of this landscape.
