Power Struggle

Power Struggle

Power Struggle chronicles a heated political battle being waged in Vermont, where citizen activists and the state government are pitted against one of America's biggest utility corporations, in a fight over the future of an aging nuclear reactor. At stake here is a fundamental question about the essence of democracy: Who should have control over vital issues that impact people's lives so directly: corporations, the federal government, states, or the people?

Power Struggle is a feature-length documentary independently produced by director Robbie Leppzer and Turning Tide Productions, in association with HBO and NHK (Japan's largest broadcaster). Leppzer's previous documentaries and commissioned television news magazine segments have been nationally broadcast on HBO/Cinemax, Sundance Channel, PBS, CNN International, CNN, HDNet, Link TV and Free Speech TV.

In production since January 2010, we have chronicled this unfolding story through the perspectives of people on all sides of the issue. With over 600 hours of high-definition footage already filmed, we are in the post-production editing phase. We are currently seeking finishing funds in order to complete the film by Summer 2015.
