World Premiere of CAPE SPIN
Blasts into Woodstock for Annual Film Festival
(Woodstock, NY) Sept. 16, 2011:
"Cape Spin" is making it's worldwide premiere at the 2011 Woodstock Film Festival on September 23 at 2:30pm at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock and makes a second appearance at Upstate Films in Rhinebeck September 25 at 11:15am.
“Give wind a chance,” versus “not in my backyard” is the central conflict in this darkly humorous and profoundly serious documentary of a community divided by green politics. With pressing points from both sides of the argument, the surprising twists of this story will have the viewer switching sides as often as the players. “Cape Spin” is a gripping and entertaining study of eco-capitalism and grassroots democracy.
Robbie Gemmel began his career at NOVA where he helped produce several award winning documentaries, including numerous segments for NOVA "ScienceNow," and a feature documentary titled "Saved by the Sun" about solar energy.
John Kirby is an award-winning director/editor who has made films for most major broadcasters. His credits include the HBO cult classic "Gladiator Days: Anatomy of a Prison Murder" and "The American Ruling Class," starring former Harper's Magazine editor Lewis Lapham. The film screened at Woodstock in 2005.
