  • Democracy prevails when a nuclear engineer turned whistle-blower, a 93-year old grandmother, and a scrappy new governor join forces with an array of activists to score a rare grassroots environmental victory in shuttering an aging nuclear reactor in Vermont. An even-handed, but at times humorous and terrifying chronicle of citizens who believe in the right to energy choices and to keeping their communities safe.

  • POWER STRUGGLE chronicles the heated political battle to shut down the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant, located on the banks of the Connecticut River in southern Vermont.

  • Filmed over five years, this feature-length documentary follows the unfolding drama as citizen activists and elected officials – alarmed at increasing safety violations – took on the federal government and one of the biggest nuclear power companies in America to call for closure of the reactor when its original 40-year license expires.

  • The film captures perspectives on all sides of the controversy, including from local residents both for and against nuclear power, elected officials, a Vermont Yankee spokesperson, federal regulators, and a nuclear engineer turned whistle-blower.

  • A timely, inspiring story of democracy in action; about whether citizens’ voices will be heard against big moneyed interests, and what people are doing locally right now to make a difference for a safe and sustainable energy future.

  • POWER STRUGGLE is also a warning about the toxic legacy of high-level radioactive waste that will remain at every nuclear power plant around the world indefinitely into the future.

  • Directed and produced by Robbie Leppzer and Turning Tide Productions, based in Wendell, MA, in association with NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation).

    Running Time: 104 minutes.
