Burning Green: In Search of Affordable Heat, a documentary film about biomass and home heating, produced by Dr. Soraya Cardenas' Environmental Sociology class at the University of Maine at Fort Kent, will premier this Friday, May 4 at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. in Fox Auditorium.
Admission to either viewing of the documentary is free and open to the public.
During a time when oil prices are rising in northern Maine, and leaving families in search of affordable heat, the documentary explores the role of biomass as an alternative heating source.
Burning Green: In Search of Affordable Heat was produced with assistance from a National Science Foundation and Maine EPSCoR grant.
