The Wind Dies the Sun Sets
On view in the DeSoto Family Vault April 28 – June 20, 2021
The Wind Dies The Sun Sets is a contemplative consideration of energy extraction and use in Pennsylvania. The film, screening in Susquehanna Art Museum’s DeSoto Family Vault, follows three characters that are embedded within the business of fossil fuel. The Pennsylvania region has a long history of energy production, first associated with the industrial revolution, and presently with fracking. The film’s emotional cadence shares the difficult realities of the altered landscape and the people who are involved.
