A Free Film Screening & Discussion

BURNED tells the little-known story of the accelerating destruction of our forests for fuel, and probes the policy loopholes, huge subsidies, and blatant green-washing of the burgeoning biomass power industry.

Through interviews with activists, experts, and citizens, along with verité-style footage shot across the U.S. and in the E.U. and U.K., the film interweaves the science of climate change, the escalating energy-policy disputes, the dynamics of forest ecology, the biomass industry practices, the conflict between jobs and trees, and the actions of activists and citizens who are working to protect their own health, their communities, the forest, and the planet’s climate.


Woven together, the various stories present an intimate and visceral account of what is at this moment in time a critical, yet mostly unknown, national and international controversy.

FACT: In the past 60 years, the U.S. South has lost over 33 million acres of natural forest.

This film is presented as part of our monthly Environmental Film Series, in partnership with the Havre de Grace Maritime Museum. All films are free to the public, courtesy of a grant bestowed by the Joseph Robert Foundation.
