Shared Planet
Director: Robbie Gemmel | Countries of production: United States | Year: 2011 | Length: 86 min
Language: English with English subtitles | Age: 12+ years

Dazzling, surreal and hilariously intimate from the start, Cape Spin follows the tragicomic battle over America’s most scandal-driven renewable energy project, Cape Wind.

Set to become the US’s first offshore windfarm, strange alliances have formed for and against the project in NIMBY central, Martha’s Vineyard.

Kennedys, journalists, grassroots and sponsored campaigners do battle with the developer and green groups over the future of American power. Fuelled by access to both sides, impartial storytelling and a fantastic soundtrack, Cape Spin foregrounds powerful questions about what works and what is acceptable, when people campaign.

“Exasperatingly funny.”
