Film at Blue Hill Library Sept. 28

BLUE HILL — The recent documentary “Patagonia Rising” will be shown at the Blue Hill Library on Friday, Sept. 28, at 7 p.m.

The film traces the history of the Baker and Pascua rivers in Chile, known as the world’s most pure, glacial rivers. The rivers are also the life source for Patagonia’s most tenacious residents, the Gauchos, iconic South American cowboys. The film explores the current plan to dam the rivers to produce “clean energy,” and the universal challenges posed by resource extraction and its environmental and social consequences.

The film is being presented by Peninsula Peace & Justice. All are welcome.

Information: 326-4405.
