Plan to join us for our seasonal showing of documentaries. This month we're screening The Price of Sand. This movie tells the story of silica sand mining in Wisconsin and Minnesota. While there have been mines in operations for decades, there has been a sudden boom in the need for silica sand because of it's use in fracking. This film examines the impact of this mining boom on the landscape, the communities and the people.
The movie will be followed by a short discussion with an activist involved in the fracking issue.
