“Other Side of the Hill” shows how rural communities in Eastern Oregon are reaping economic rewards now by transcending the toxic partisan rhetoric of climate change. Come join our screening and be inspired.
From the filmmaker, James M Parker: “Other Side of the Hill explores the impacts of a changing climate in rural Eastern Oregon – as seen through the eyes of local leaders on the ground. From innovative timber operations in Wallowa County to large scale solar in Lakeview, we amplify the voices of rural communities often left unheard. In a time of unprecedented cultural divide between rural and urban Oregon, we find common ground in an urgency to address a changing landscape.”
The 30-minute film will be followed by Q&A with the filmmaker James Parker, as well as leaders in Rogue Valley renewable energy initiatives.
WHEN: On Thursday, October 29, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Thank you to SOCAN-Ashland Climate Action Project for organizing this effort and hosting this as a free private Zoom screening.
