If you haven’t been following along at home, Greg Giles and I accidentally started an occasional conversational essay series on films with environmental and food justice themes, and Berfrois editor Russell Bennetts has been kind enough to keep publishing it.

Russell’s a good guy. I’ve never met him and have no idea how he originally found my work, but he’s a dude who will both discuss whether our titles should be punctuated à la Dr. Strangelove or Moby Dick AND send me an Alice in Chains video just because.

Today our third installment is up, a meditation on dams through the lens of narrative and documentary film. What’s at the bottom of Lake Powell, and why do people think hydropower is clean?

Here’s a Rainbow After My Act of Annihilation;
or, Hydroelectric Romance and Terror
