100 Short Stories is acclaimed Nova Scotian filmmaker Neal Livingston’s first feature-length documentary.
In an original, engaging and often humorous exploration of energy policy, governance and regional policy, Livingston interweaves tales of predatory capitalism, eco-activism and contemporary life in Atlantic Canada.
The film presents a first-person account of a year-long struggle to develop Black River Wind, a renewable energy project, and to overcome an attempted hostile takeover. Meanwhile, the local citizens of Inverness County band together to defeat oil and gas drilling and fracking coming to Cape Breton Island.
100 Short Stories won the 2017 Energy Award at the Cinema Verde Film Festival in Gainesville, Florida.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A and Neal Livingston will be in attendance.
