'Movie At The Moon' Set For Labor Day
Published: August 30th, 2017

NORWICH – Continuing with its mission, dedicated to increasing awareness of programs that provide opportunities for interested residents to network and strengthen community ties, the local volunteer organization, Chenango Links, is pleased to sponsor the next monthly first 'Movie at the Moon' in Norwich, a showing of two short films.

In the first film, Maps, Magic & Medicine in the Rainforest, ethno-botanist and author, Mark Plotkin, describes his close work with indigenous people and tribes in the northwest Amazon. He shows how his contact with elder healers allowed him to learn vital and useful healing information that had been passed down through generations.

The second film shows actions organized by a group, Protect Orange County, as this nearby community resists a fracked gas powered electric generating plant being imposed on it. Former Congressman Dennis Kucinich, environmentalist Bill McKibben, climate activist Tim DeChristopher, and other community leaders identify the criminal corporate corruption that reached into Governor Cuomo's office in a successful push to avoid proper permitting of the project.
