Ein warnendes Beispiel zur Windkraft - Architekten und Künstler
Filmmaker Laura Israel isn’t tilting at windmills – but she does want to cast a critical eye in their direction.
And she’s done that with “Windfall” – her first documentary film, art directed within an inch of its life – and one that delivers a profound message:
Look before you leap into wind power.
“People who are living with these turbines nearby are developing hypertension, migraines and heart palpitations,” she says. “There are some really spooky health effects, even with a turbine a mile away – I’ve heard people say they can feel their heart beating at the same pace as the turbines.”
The effects of the turbines’ low frequency sound are chilling – nearby residents sleeping in basements, unable to stop the 24/7 noise and visual pollution. But the budding industry – growing now at a startling 39 percent annually – is choosing not to deal with them. “Instead of dealing with it, they’re trying to discredit the people complaining,” she says.
