MUUC Green Sanctuary Environmental Film: “DENIAL”; Sat., May 26 7:00 pm

The Melrose UU Church Green Sanctuary Committee is presenting the film, “Denial” on Saturday, May 26, 2018, at 7:00 pm in the Church Parlor.

Environmental catastrophe, for most the problem is easy to ignore. As people we often find it difficult to face change; we’d rather be in denial.

David Hallquist, CEO of a small Vermont utility, made it his mission to take on one of the US’s largest contributors to this global crisis, our outdated and vulnerable electric grid. Under David’s leadership, his utility was one of the first to implement a smart grid.

But when his filmmaker son, Derek, tries to tell his father’s story, the film is soon derailed by a staggering family secret, one that forces Derek and David to turn their attention toward a much more personal struggle, one that can no longer be denied.
