THE WIND DIES THE SUN SETS
A CONTEMPLATIVE CONSIDERATION OF
ENERGY EXTRACTION AND USE IN PENNSYLVANIA
The film follows three characters that are embedded within the business of fossil fuel. The Pennsylvania region has a long history of energy production, first associated with the industrial revolution, and presently with fracking. The film's emotional cadence shares the difficult realities of the altered landscape and the people who are involved.
