In a cinema vérite style, the film explores the struggles and triumphs, and the healing power of music, as the band members’ unique talents are nurtured to challenge the world’s perceptions.

We are pleased to announce that NPU General Manager John Bilda will be on hand to lead a discussion and field questions related power consumption right here in our own area of Connecticut.

Deep Down puts a human face on the consequences of our environmental impact.

Any exploration of power production in America will lead to Appalachia, a region that has supplied our nation with coal for over a century. As America’s energy consumption rises, the extraction and burning of coal to meet these demands has dramatically altered the Appalachian landscape, economy, and culture. Mountaintop removal mining has stripped swaths of the ancient hills down into barren, flat-topped environmental catastrophes.

Coal is the number one industry here, with an enormous influence on local economies and people. Simultaneously, Appalachia as a region deserves our attention as a place of history, complexity, and change. It is time for us to look back to this “forgotten” region. We must trace the power lines from our homes to people far removed from our daily lives.
