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.
