FRANCES TURNS 100

A Film by Robbie Leppzer

(Also includes at the end an excerpt from POWER STRUGGLE featuring Frances.)
This is a short film I made of longtime activist Frances Crowe’s 100th birthday march through the streets of Northampton, MA, which took place on March 16, 2019.
Frances is prominently featured in my latest feature-length film, POWER STRUGGLE, which chronicles the successful grassroots citizen effort to shut down the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant. For more information or to watch a trailer, visit: PowerStruggleMovie.com
Later this fall, I will be posting at the POWER STRUGGLE website a video of a discussion panel that I moderated with Frances, along with Marcia Gagliardi and Hattie Nestel of the Shut It Down Affinity Group, talking about their experiences as activists in the Vermont Yankee struggle. This took place at the Northampton Center For The Arts in June.
