awaiting a smelting plant and with it, the nation’s possible first step towards sovereignty

POV film ‘Winter’s Yearning’ to be screened at Rockland library

Event has passed

    ROCKLAND — The Rockland Public Library presents a screening of Winter’s Yearning, by Sidse Torstholm, Sturla Pilskog, Are Kvalnes Pilskog, Vibeke Vogel, and Emile Hertling Péronard, on Thursday, Sept. 15, at 6:30 p.m. This event is free and open to all.

    In Maniitsoq, Greenland, the US aluminum giant Alcoa Corporation has been planning to build a smelting plant for years. With the promise of economic renewal, Winter’s Yearning follows the lives of the area’s loyal aging population and its stymied youth. Pictured against immense, isolating landscapes, the people await their plant and with it, the nation’s possible first step towards sovereignty.

    This event is a collaboration with the award-winning documentary series POV (www.pbs.org/pov).

    This program will be shown simultaneously in the library’s Community Room and via Zoom; the Rockland Public Library is located at 80 Union Street.

    For more information or for links to attend via Zoom, please email elewis@rocklandmaine.gov by 4 p.m. on September 15 and identify the event you are interested in attending in the subject line.
