WINDFALL, a new documentary by filmmaker Laura Israel, observes the deeply divided residents of Meredith, New York an Upstate farm community in decline as they debate the pros and cons of allowing wind turbines on their land. Local proponents champion the promise of green energy and
monetary compensation, while detractors question the efficiency of wind-generated energy and the drawbacks of living among 400-foot tall towers with gigantic rotating blades. WINDFALL premiered last month at the 2010 Toronto Film Festival. - Anthony Kaufman, The Wall Street Journal
