‘Kilowatt Ours’ burns bright in film series
August 31, 2010
Filmmaker Jeff Barrie turned a camera on himself and asked, “How can I make a difference?”
The result is “Kilowatt Ours” — the last film to be screened as part of the city-sponsored Sustainability Film Series.
“Kilowatt Ours” explores the source of electricity and the problems caused by energy production, including climate change, mountaintop removal mining and childhood asthma.
In the film, Barrie encounters people, businesses, organizations and communities using energy conservation and “green” power to save money and the environment.
The free event runs from 6-9 p.m. Sept. 16 at the King County Library Service Center, 960 Newport Way N.W.
Arrive early for snacks, the chance to talk to local energy experts and to sign up for home energy audits.
The city Resource Conservation Office presents the Sustainability Film Series through a grant from the King County Local Hazardous Waste Management Program. Call the Resource Conservation Office at 837-3400 to learn more.
