This is a 16-minute documentary film about controveries around turning Philadelphia into a so-called "energy hub", a term first used by oil and gas companies 3 years ago to boost fossil fuel production in the Philadelphia region by building new pipelines and expanding existing infrastructure.
There has been a shroud of mystery about the tangible plans of this "energy hub" because proponents have tried to keep its details under wraps in case opponents were to find out and protest. There's been a lot of shouting, dredging, and propaganda, but both sides have at best only been talking past each other.
I figured a film would be an effective way of bringing the proponents and opponents of the energy hub into a debate to shed light on the likely impacts of the energy hub on health, safety, and jobs for Philadelphians. Hear the passionate opinions from the experts on energy policy. See the refinery in breathtaking detail through the optics of a 300mm telephoto lens. Feel the seriousness of what is at stake for our city, our nation, our generation.
