// the bottom of lake powell


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 seems like 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
