Cheshire Ohio wins the Special Juried Award at The Frozen River Film Festival!

The juror’s statement: “Cheshire Ohio presents an important & specific story about the working class people in a small American town along the Ohio River. Filmed over a decade, the filmmaker uses interviews, home movies and historical photos to reveal the difficult choices people must make about the source of their electric power and its relationship to their home-place. It shows what it’s like to stay indoors to avoid a dark toxic cloud coming from their local coal-fired power plant & to face the buy-out and bulldozing of the community by the large power company; to lose friends and co-workers to cancer after working at the coal ash landfill; and yet depend on that company for their jobs.”
