Award-winning documentary on the risks of controversial ‘smart’ electric meters and why hundreds of local governments are standing
against the multi-billion dollar rollout of ‘smart’ utility meters. It examines the evidence of in-home privacy invasions, skyrocketing power bills, health & environmental harm, fires, and unprecedented hacking vulnerability from the same type of meters currently being installed on residences and businesses in the Roaring Fork Valley. Holy Cross Energy is currently in Phase 2 of the rollout of these "Enhanced meters".

Open Sesame: The Story of Seeds
Sponsored by Dandelion Days
Friday May 8
This documentary illuminates the issues surrounding seeds, which provide the basis for everything from fabric, to food to fuels. Maintaining
seed biodiversity allows us to breed new varieties that are resistant to pests or thrive in temperature extremes. This is essential in a changing climate. In the past seed was communal, a shared resource. Today 82% of the world-wide seed market is corporate-owned. This film tells the story of seeds by following the challenges of farmers, gardeners, and seed-activists as they work to save this precious resource. - submitted press release
