Winter’s Yearning: A Film Screening from POV by PBS
The Rockland Public Library presents a screening of Winter’s Yearning by Sidse Torstholm, Sturla Pilskog, Are Kvalnes Pilskog, Vibeke Vogel, and Emile Hertling Péronard, on Thursday, September 15, at 6:30 p.m.
In Maniitsoq, Greenland, the US aluminum giant Alcoa Corporation has been planning to build a smelting plant for years. With the promise of economic renewal, Winter’s Yearning follows the lives of the area’s loyal aging population and its stymied youth. Pictured against immense, isolating landscapes, the people await their plant and with it, the nation’s possible first step towards sovereignty.
This event is a collaboration with the award-winning documentary series POV (www.pbs.org/pov).
This program will be shown simultaneously in the library’s Community Room and via Zoom. For more info or for Zoom links, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
